As we have taken the extraordinary step during this public health crisis of suspending Sunday and Wednesday Eucharistic services, it becomes all the more important for our corporate worship to be expressed in our homes. Gathering for worship in word and sacrament has always been at the center of Anglican devotion, but weekly communion has always been accompanied by daily Morning and Evening Prayer as the chief way in which the corporate prayer of the church gives shape to our private devotions.
Associate Rector, Jonathan Warren, recently began a series of brief teachings on Ascension’s YouTube entitled “The Word and the World”. The full series is available HERE or by clicking the image to follow:
Jonathan Warren offers a teaching on spiritual communion, especially important during this period of time when the church cannot gather together to have eucharist. Please watch the video below and refer to Jonathan Warren’s article which is available HERE.
Praying the Daily Office:
During this season, we would highly encourage you to pray Morning and Evening prayer each day, or to pray the shortened versions entitled ‘Family Prayer’ in the Book of Common Prayer 2019, either as an individual, with your family, or with another small group of under 10 people. Under this ‘resource’ tab, we will also provide other resources to aid adults and children in your devotional life as we endure this crisis together.
