This service with prayers for healing and Holy Eucharist takes place in the Children’s Chapel, located near the main office of the church. We use the Holy Women, Holy Men: Celebrating the Saints, for our lessons for the day and usually have a spirited discussion based on the Scripture of the day. We sing using our voices as our instruments and gather around the table to celebrate the Eucharist. All are welcome to this informal service.
Blessed feasts of blessed martyrs, holy women, holy men, with affection’s recollections greet we your return again. Worthy deeds they wrought, and wonders, worthy of the Name they bore; we, with meetest praise and sweetest, honor them for evermore.
