Instructed Eucharist

Instructed Eucharist at Trinity

November 19 was the Youth Sunday for November, and, in addition to the young people assuming most of the roles in the service, they took on a significant part of the instructed Eucharist we hold from time to time.   The instructed Eucharist is basically a series of planned interruptions of the service in which readers provide commentary about what has just happened and about what is going to happen next.  We don’t conduct them frequently because the narratives do disrupt the flow of the service, but when we do, most people find it to be a learning experience.

It’s not just for the young people that we hold these, by the way.  Most adults can still learn something about the way our principal worship service is conducted and why it is the way it is.  For that reason we’ve decided to provide the script for this year’s instructed Eucharist  so you can read over what you heard on Sunday.

Bulletin for Sunday, July 3

Here’s the bulletin for services at Trinity Lime Rock on Sunday, July 3, 2016.

Note that this Sunday we’re having Morning Prayer at both the 8 AM service and at the 10:30 AM service instead of our customary Holy Eucharist.  Pastor Heidi is on vacation right now, and this brings both a change in pace and an opportunity for older Episcopalians to remember the way things were when Morning Prayer was the usual Sunday service, and Holy Eucharist was the exception.
