3rd Sunday: Celtic Eucharist
Celtic worship is a way for us to get in touch with how worship might have been done before The Roman Church influenced worship in Great Britain. This form of worship was taught by the monasteries and thus emphasizes the unity of living and praying. It is praise filled and highlights the sacredness of place and a oneness with creation. Celtic worship speaks simultaneously to the heart and the mind rather than only the mind. Celtic music is hauntingly beautiful and often contemplative in style. Piano and flute accompany the music.
