5th Sunday after Pentecost
July 3rd, 2020
This VIDEO connects you with a pre-recorded Eucharist from St Paul’s Cathedral in Sale for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, 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 Heather Toms (Associate Priest at St Paul’s Cathedral) preaching. Cathedral organist Anthony Hahn accompanies the hymns and the setting for the Eucharist, and Jenny Batten helps to lead the singing.
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.
