11th Sunday after Pentecost Eucharist from St Paul's Cathedral Sale
August 15th, 2020
This video connects you with a pre-recorded Eucharist from St Paul’s Cathedral in Sale for the 11th Sunday after Pentecost No congregation is present at this time of social restriction on public gatherings due to Covid-19. We are pleased to be able to offer this service to you during this time. Bishop Richard Treloar presides at this service, with The Revd Jenny Wicking preaching. Cathedral organist Anthony Hahn accompanies the hymns and the setting for the Eucharist. Following the service, we recorded a ‘fireside chat’ with Jenny and Tony Wicking, priests at Yarram in the Diocese of Gippsland.
You may like to practice the tradition of ‘spiritual communion’ as you watch and listen to this Eucharist, and especially at the point of distribution of the Sacrament in this video. The following prayer may be helpful: O Lord Jesus Christ, through your tender mercy grant that as the hem of your garment, touched in faith, healed the woman who could not touch your body, so the soul of this your servant may be healed by like faith in you, whom I cannot now sacramentally receive. In union with the faithful at every altar-table in your Church I desire to be united with you, and pray that you will come spiritually into my heart. Let nothing ever separate me from your love, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
