We will be collaborating with our fellow Bluegrass Deanery churches to produce virtual services for Palm Sunday and Holy Week (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil). St Patrick parishioners are present in each service alongside our larger regional spiritual community.

The videos will be posted to our Webpage, Facebook Page, and YouTube Channel just like we normally do for our own services. We have bulletins for each service linked below. 

This Sunday, we will be observing the diocesan service produced by DioLex. That service and related materials for it can be found by clicking here.

The Season of Lent is a time of preparation for Holy Week and Easter.  It is the most somber of Christian Seasons.  Following in the example of early Christians, we recognize this time as one of repentance and fasting.  During these forty days, we examine that which separates us form the love of Christ and pray for reconciliation and forgiveness.  We also fast, participate in self-examination, and mediate on scripture.

Together with the rest of the Bluegrass Deanery, St Patrick Episcopal Church will be observing a nightly evening prayer. On Thursday nights we will be hosting and posting that service here alongside our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Below are the links to the various hosts of these Evening Prayer Services.

Season of Creation

Below text borrowed from the Season of Creation packet (link below blurb).

“Each year, Christians around the world join in celebrating the Season of Creation. This is a time for renewing, repairing and restoring our commitments to God, to one another and to all of creation – relationships at the heart of Christian discipleship. It is also a time for deepening and expanding our work and witness for climate justice and environmental care.

Together we have prepared these devotions for the Season of Creation 2020, one for each week from Sept. 1 through Oct. 4. We invite you to join us through Scripture, hymnody, prayer, advocacy and action as we seek to live out our vocation as stewards of creation.

For our four churches, this is also a season of deepening our relationship with each other. We are on the cusp of entering into full communion relationships that reach across the borders between us – as churches and nations – for the sake of our common mission and witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are mindful in this season that we share in the gifts and responsibilities of God’s good creation. Our stewardship of the earth is not bound by national or ecclesiastical borders, but by our common baptism. By enriching our spirits together, we become emboldened as disciples of Christ and enlivened in our witness to the One, who came to redeem all of creation.”

Holy Week Services

Palm Sunday

Before the service, gather branches, leaves, or plants from around your home (or make some drawings of them). They do not have to be palms — the Gospel lesson just says that the people cut branches to prepare the way for Jesus. You can also collect some stones to make a small model of a road somewhere in your house. These activities may be especially good for children.

It is appropriate that the service begin outside in the yard, or in a distant part of the house, and then process to a main room for Morning Prayer.

Bulletin

Service Video

Maundy Thursday

The family, or those participating in the service, gather in one place in the house. It is appropriate that this service be held around a dinner table, as Jesus dined with his friends on the night before he died. Because this is a Lenten liturgy, the meals should be simple. A meatless meal is preferred; bread, wine, olives, soup, and cheese are appropriate. The table should be set with candles that are lighted to signal the beginning of the service. Have an empty bowl, pitcher of warm water, and one towel for each person at the ready before the start of the service. The prayers, blessings, and readings can be divided among those participating.

The candles are lighted to signal the beginning of the service.

The video below is for the “sermon” part of the bulletin.

Meditation Video

Good Friday

It is appropriate to hold this service beginning at Noon, the hour when Christ was hung on the cross. Gather with your family, alone, or with friends and church members on the phone or video chat and begin in silence. Different members of the household or participants can read or lead different parts of the service. Select (or make) a cross from your home to be presented during the service. If you need a cross, you can find some on our Holy Week page. Drawing or building a cross may be a good activity for children and families.

The service begins and ends in silence. Give yourself and those with you a few moments to gather and pray before the leader begins the service. If you are alone or feel lonely, remember that Jesus was lonely too: his friends left him when he was handed over to Pilate. Commit yourself to being in Christ’s presence as he suffers for the life of the world. On this day, Jesus hangs on the Cross, interceding for the world. As people of God, we pray the Solemn Collects to intercede for a world that desperately needs God’s love.

Holy Saturday

This simple service can be said alone, or with friends connected through the phone or video chat. It should be held in the morning or very early afternoon so as not to conflict with the Easter Vigil, which begins at sunset. Different people may be assigned to read different parts of the service.
