Opening the Prayer Book -

Opening the Prayer Book:  (Jan 18th – Mar 15th)

Join us for the next several weeks as Walter and Susan facilitate a discussion on Episcopalians being “People of the Prayer Book.”  It will be practical, offering tips on how to find your way around the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), but also ripe with why we do – what we do!  You’re encouraged to bring your own  Book of Common Prayer if you have one. (We will also have copies to borrow.)  Even if you missed earlier sessions, you are welcome to join us at any time.

Feb 1st:  The Daily Office tour – A practical and concrete session that first talks about praying the hours.  This will be a practical session to show how to do Morning Prayer (MP) and Evening Prayer (EP) (plus Compline) from the BCP.  Shorter Morning Prayer options shared; with a handout for a daily Lenten MP use at home.  Our weekly conversations will refer to John Westerhoff’s book, Living Faithfully as a Prayer Book People.  For those who want to purchase a book, we will have them there for $10.

Candlemas Procession and Choral Evensong

Eve of the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple
Sunday, 1 Feb. 2014 5.30 pm
St. Andrew’s Cathedral
The Very Rev. Walter B.A. Brownridge, Dean
The Cathedral Choir

candlemasCandlemas Procession and Choral Evensong will be sung by the Cathedral Choir on the Eve of the Feast of the Presentation, Sun., Feb. 1 at 5:30 pm. One of the most ancient observances in the Christian calendar, the Feast of the Presentation commemorates the day when Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the Temple in Jerusalem to be presented according to Jewish law. The presentation of Christ in the temple forty days after his birth commemorates the entry of the ‘true light’ into the world, and concludes the celebration of the Christmas Season.

We also mark this day with the solemn blessing of candles and a procession at Evensong.  All are provided with candles that are lit as the ancient canticle of Simeon is sung,

Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go in peace as you have promised.
For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior,
who you have prepared for all the world to see.

Candles, representing those to be used in our worship throughout the year, will be blessed and then carried in procession.  You are also encouraged to bring candles from home to be blessed.  The prayers and music for this feast are some of the most beautiful of the year.

This feast has particular meaning for those who “minister in the temple.”  Like Simeon and the prophet Anna, those of us who minister as acolytes, ushers, lectors, servers, singers, Altar Guild members, Eucharistic Ministers, and members of the hospitality team, all do our part to reveal this Light to all nations…to all who come to our Cathedral as pilgrims and seekers from around the world.
