Trinity Sunday Eucharist Service from St Paul's Cathedral

June 7th, 2020

This video connects you with a pre-recorded Eucharist from St Paul’s Cathedral in Sale for 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.

Bishop Richard presides at this service, with Dean Susanna Pain 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.

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.

Here is an audio track for those who would prefer to listen.
