1st Sunday after Trinity Sunday

June 13th, 2020

This video resource connects you with a pre-recorded Eucharist from St Paul’s Cathedral in Sale for 2nd Sunday after Trinity Sunday, for which a small congregation was present. As some churches reopen for restricted gathered worship, 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 in a time of transition. Dean Susanna Pain presides at this service, with the Revd Jo White preaching. Lay Reader and ordination candidate Jackie Belot, Chaplain at Gippsland Grammar, offers a children’s talk. Cathedral organist Anthony Hahn accompanies the hymns and the setting for the Eucharist. Jenny Batten helps to lead the singing, and members of the congregation deliver the readings and the intercessions. Following the service, we recorded a ‘fireside chat’ with The Revd Jo White, Rector at Bass/Philip Island parish. Jo reflects on how the Spirit guides her in leading her Parish and the rapid change that these current times bring. Jo reflects on her call to ordained ministry and her love of the Philip Island MotoGP. Our thanks as always to the Cathedral Parish for their hospitality, and to the Registrar for filming and editing these services. 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.
