Here is the bullletin for 11/1.
To mark the feast of All Saints, this Sunday we will share a special service of Communion with bread and wine already consecrated at Trinity. Binding the spirits of a home Communion with our more customary sharing of the sacrament together in church, our 9:45 am worship will take place live from the Trinity altar.
Before worship begins, we invite everyone to set a Communion table wherever you are: a simple table covering (on the church altar, a “corporal”); a plain plate for the bread wafers (a “paten”); and a plain glass for the wine (a “chalice”). After praying an amended Eucharistic Prayer A from our Book of Common Prayer, we will announce the familiar Invitation: “The gifts of God, for the people of God.” We will then – from our many and varied “home chapels” and settings – consume the bread and wine from our Home For Faith Kits, saying in turn, “The body of Christ, the bread of heaven;” and “The blood of Christ, the cup of salvation.”
Having received the gift of this Communion, we will then invite everyone to join the “great cloud of witnesses” we celebrate on All Saints and to make their 2021 pledge. While in this moment some may fill out their physical Pledge Card (also included in the Kit) and ready it for mailing on Monday morning, we will post a link to our secure pledging webpage in the chat. We encourage everyone who has not already, to make their pledge there and at this time, praying this shared commitment will join us as, in person, processing our pledges to the altar would.
While the church itself will be closed for everyone's safety, all are encouraged to join online.
