Contemplative Eucharist: Sunday, March 11 | 9:00 & 11:15 a.m.

An All Saints first – a contemplative liturgy without a spoken word.

Meeting God in the Still and Silent Places

Take a Soul Break, a time of prayers without words,
to open yourself to the blessings of joy, healing and peace.
Immerse yourself in music, silence,
and the beauty of our church’s architecture.
The printed liturgy will contain
poetry and other devotional readings for us to consider.
We will sing the congregational hymns as usual.

The Holy Eucharist will be celebrated through music,
offered by Coventry Choir with cello, flute, piano and organ.
The choir with organ and instrumentalists will offer anthems
and music in place of the spoken words
of the sermon, the prayers, the announcements.

The service will include music of Fauré, Vivaldi, Franck, Debussy,
MacMillan, Kodaly, Alain, Clara Schumann and Mendelssohn.
The prayers of the people will be an opportunity for usto move to votive candle stands
to light a candle and pause for a moment.

The children will have an extended Children’s Chapel and
Eucharist where they will experience similar music,
prayers and meditation in as much silence as possible.

Come! Join us for an oasis of contemplation
Sunday, March 11 | 9 & 11:15 a.m.
