Celtic Eucharist

Sunday, November 2, 4:00 p.m.  

Virginia Schweninger, harpist

St. John’s Parish Choir


This contemplative and beautiful candlelight Eucharist will feature Celtic music for choir and harp. The liturgy invites the worshipper to enter into a place of rest, prayer, and reflection. Those who have died during the past year will be remembered by name, and there will be an opportunity during the service for everyone to light a candle as a tangible reminder of those for whom we pray.
