12th Sunday after Pentecost - Eucharist Service

August 22nd, 2020

This video connects you with a pre-recorded Eucharist from St Paul’s Cathedral in Sale for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost. As many churches are currently closed in Victoria, for many households ongoing access to online resources such as this continues to be important, and we are pleased to be able to offer them at this time. Dean Susanna Pain presides at this service, with the Very Revd. Dean Peter Bickley, Dean of the Sale’s Catholic Cathedral preaching. Cathedral organist Anthony Hahn accompanies the hymns and the setting for the Eucharist, and Jenny Batten helps to lead the singing. Thanks to Christine Morris who is filming the service. Following the service, we recorded a ‘fireside chat’ with Dean Peter Bickley, Dean of Sale’s Catholic Cathedral. 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. Please feel free to share this resource with anyone you feel may benefit from it. Grace and peace, +Richard
