Monday, June 1, Designated as a Day of Mourning and Lament
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has joined other faith leaders in calling for a national day of mourning and lament on June 1 as the United States exceeds 100,000 documented deaths from COVID-19. In response to this, St. Matthew’s WILL NOT begin the summer schedule on Monday June 1, but will hold special services of mourning and lament at 8am and 6pm. The summer schedule will start on Tuesday, June 2, with a single service at 8am.
SUMMER ONLINE WEEKDAY WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Father Tommy and I are thrilled with the constant presence of 30+ worships each day when we gather for morning and evening devotions. Your presence makes our preparation and sharing of worship such a joy! As we move into summer, it’s time to modify things a bit, so that Father Tommy and I can plan for some time off without leaving the other of us to carry this on-line worship alone. So, we are changing two things: we are modifying the schedule of service for summer, effective June 1, AND we are inviting some of you who feel called to this ministry, to help lead worship.
The new schedule, effective June 2nd is as follows:
Monday 6:00 p.m. – Father Tommy
Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. – volunteer needed
Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. – Healing Service, Mother Liz and Father Tommy will alternate
Thursday at 8:00 a.m. – Mother Liz
Friday at 6:00 p.m. – Family Compline
(Sunday Online worship continues to be at 10:00 a.m.)
If you are interested in leading one of the Tuesday morning services, please let Father Tommy or Mother Liz know, and we will get you on the schedule. We are also looking for families who would lead Family Compline on Friday nights at 6:00 p.m.
