Celtic Eucharist

A special thanks to Elise Kress‘ trio for leading us at our Celtic worship service this morning!

Fr Ben’s Sermon: “Relationships and Human Frailty”

As usual, Fr Ben’s sermon was one you’ll want to listen to again.

Prayer of Confession and Reconciliation

From the Iona Abbey Worship Book. You can read all the prayers used in today’s service here.


Eternal God, maker of the skies above, lowly Christ, born amidst the growing earth, Spirit of life, wind over the flowing waters, in earth, sea and sky, you are there.

O hidden mystery, sun behind all suns, soul behind all souls, in everything we touch, in everyone we meet, your presence is around us, and we give you thanks.

But when we have not touched but trampled you in Creation, when we have not met but missed you in one another, when we have not received but rejected you in the poor, forgive us, and hear now our plea for mercy.


Hear now the words of Jesus for all who are truly sorry and seek to renew their lives: Your sins are forgiven. Go in peace; come and follow me.

Lead us now, O God, to acknowledge your costly generosity by living as forgiven people, until heaven and earth rejoice and the whole earth cries Glory! through Christ our Lord. Amen.
