Communion Service from St Paul's Cathedral Sale

October 17th, 2020

This Sunday we are pleased to offer pre-recorded worship from St Paul’s Cathedral Sale for the 20th Sunday after Pentecost in this video.

Dean Susanna Pain presides at the Eucharist, with The Revd Tracy Lauersen (Rector of St Paul’s Warragul) preaching.

You might also like to sit in on the ‘fireside chat’ that Tracy and I had after the service, using this link.

The tradition of ‘spiritual communion’ may be helpful as you watch and listen to this Eucharist, and at the point of distribution of the Sacrament you could say the following prayer:

O Lord Jesus Christ, through your tender mercy grant that as the hem of your garment, touched in faith, healed the woman who could not touch your body, so the soul of this your servant may be healed by like faith in you, whom I cannot now sacramentally receive. In union with the faithful at every altar-table in your Church I desire to be united with you, and pray that you will come spiritually into my heart. Let nothing ever separate me from your love, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Please feel free to share this resource with anyone you feel may benefit from it.

Grace and peace +Richard
