Online Worship

Because we are unable to worship together, due to the coronavirus quarantine, we invite you to keep the sabbath by praying, listening, and reading along with the prayers and links below.

April 19 - The Second Sunday of Easter - Not Available

Here are some thoughts about how we can attend Online Worship:

Get out of bed and get dressed

It will put us in the right mindset for worship. Plus, if it’s a ZOOM style worship, we can all see each other!

 Go through our normal Sunday routine

 Especially in a pre-recorded video format when we can skip the “Hurry up. We’re late” part.

No multi-tasking

 Worship requires focusing our attention on the scripture, prayers, and message.

Or hold your handheld device close so, we can feel together that, although we’re in separate places, we truly are together in Christ. Lighting a candle might remind us of God's sacred presence. And lastly …

 Sing and pray aloud and proud

We've probably all had the experience of singing along with a song on the car radio. It didn't matter if our favorite band couldn't hear us singing with them. So, don't be shy. Sing along, say Amen, recite the responses and prayers; even clap, raise your hands, or take notes, just like we would if we were at St. Patrick’s.

This way we can all recognize that each home IS a sanctuary and the church is not a building. We are the church.

It's our prayer that you are continuing to use the precautions to keep yourself and your neighbors healthy and safe during the current health circumstances.

A prayer for anytime when we cannot attend worship 

In union, O Lord, with your faithful people at every altar of your Church, where the Holy Eucharist is now being celebrated. I desire to offer you praise and thanksgiving. I remember your death, Lord Christ; I proclaim your resurrection; I await your coming in glory. And since I cannot receive you today in the Sacrament of your Body and Blood, I beseech you to come spiritually into my heart. Cleanse and strengthen me with your grace, Lord Jesus, and let me never be separated from you. May I live in you, and you in me, in this life and the life to come.  Amen.                                    From The Prayer Book of the Armed Forces (1988)
