The Ceili De Service

Date: Sun 4 Mar 2018
Time: 06:00PM - 07:00PM
A Service of Celtic Spirituality

The Ceili De

At 6:00 p.m. on the First Sunday of each month, St. Augustine’s offers “The Ceili De Service”. The Ceili De Service is a service based on the Celtic spiritual tradition. It combines the meditative silence, the simplicity of utterance, and the faithful commitment to care for the earth that many of us are yearning for in our lives. It is drawn from the liturgical traditions of Iona and Northumbria, and the music at these services is contemplative, lively and haunting. The prayers are at once earthy, holy and inclusive. All are welcome at this service.

The Ceili De service includes healing prayer for those who desire it. There is no traditional sermon, but a brief reflection near the beginning of the service given by a lay person or sometimes by a member of the clergy.

All are welcome to receive Communion. Please do not worry about "doing it right." The important thing is simply that you know that God welcomes you, and there is no telling how God might reach you in Communion. Just be open.
