Saints Among Us
Celebrating Jesus’ loving presence in the stories of all people
Stories, music, reflection and prayers in the garden
St. Michael’s Litchfield will be offering a four-part program Saints Among Us, celebrating Jesus’ loving presence in the stories of all people. Voices of Courage, Compassion and Healing, Educators, and Servants of Creation are the themes that seem most appropriate to celebrate now that we are able to joyfully gather together again for social events.
The events will be held outdoors in our memorial garden (weather permitting) and will include a selection of stories, music and prayers commemorating people and organizations that exemplify the theme of the evening. At least one person being commemorated at each event comes from the Episcopal Church Calendar of Saints’ Days and Commemorations. Sometimes these people are canonized saints in the church, as is the case with Saint Francis. Sometimes these people are saints like you, as is the case with Harriett Beecher Stowe. In all cases there are things about the way these people have lived their lives that are worth remembering, admiring and emulating.
There will be an opportunity at each event for participants to add names of people or organizations to those being commemorated.
These all ages events will include sidewalk chalk, and hands on activities to be enjoyed by those that like to be busy while listening.
Join us for one or all of these uplifting evenings of reflection, contemplation and fellowship. In the event of rain we will meet in the church.
