Schedule for the week of Christmas
By The Rev. Daniel P. Strandlund | December 17, 2020
Sunday, December 20: An Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols for the 4th Sunday of Advent. This is an "online-only" service and will be on Facebook and YouTube at 10am. See bulletin link below, included in this newsletter. Lots of St. Liz faces in this one!
Thursday, December 24: A Celebration of Holy Eucharist for Christmas Eve, ending with candlelight and “Silent Night.” This service will be outdoors and in-person at 4:30pm. It will also be live streamed via YouTube. Our link will be posted on Facebook and will be texted. If weather is bad, we’ll be online only. Note: Since this is an outdoor service, there will be no Reverend Father Advent Humbug around to tell you not to bring your coffee/hot chocolate/etc. into the church! Festive attire, reindeer antlers, etc. are all very much encouraged, as well!
Friday, December 25: We will not hold a Christmas Day service this year (though our Christmas Eve service should still be available online). Mark and Wanda have recorded Christmas music that will be available online by 8am Christmas Day.
Sunday, December 27: Holy Eucharist Rite II at 10am. This service will be outdoors and in-person, with a live stream option for folks at home. If weather is bad, this will be online only, with the link posted on FB, YouTube, and text.
Sunday, January 3: Holy Eucharist Rite II at 10am. This service will be outdoors and in-person, with a live stream option for folks at home. If weather is bad, this will be online only, with the link posted on FB, YouTube, and text.
Finally, in wider diocesan news, Lucy Strandlund (my fave) will be ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests tomorrow (Saturday), December 19 at 11am at St. John’s Episcopal Church in New Braunfels. Watch the service here.
Stay warm, stay safe, and stay hopeful!
