8:00AM SERVICES located at St. Augustine's A-Frame Chapel, 200 24th Ave South
RECOVERY EUCHARIST- First, Third, and Fifth Sundays of the month
Recovery Eucharist is not a 12-step meeting. Rather it is a worship service that welcomes anyone of any faith tradition to come and see if participating in this kind of gathering will actually enhance their own experience of God. All persons, in any type of recovery and at any phase of their journey, are welcomed to come to this safe space and worship service that nurtures and strengthens their relationships to a Higher Power through fuller participation in the sacraments and fellowship. This service is unique because, instead of a sermon, individuals at their own discretion reflect and share on how the Gospel and the 12 Step Reading intersect with their own lives. For more information, please email Mary Murphy at email@example.com who serves as administrator of the service.
Contemplative Eucharist- SECOND AND FOURTH SUNDAYs OF THE MONTH
Thomas Merton once said, "let there always be quiet, dark churches in which people can take refuge." This is the aim of the Contemplative Eucharist; that is, to provide a sacred space to rest in God. This service, which meets on the second and fourth Sunday of each month from 8.00-9.00AM, provides many different opportunities to experience Divine Love through silence, qi gong, music, guided mediation, preaching, and of course the Eucharist. At the conclusion of the service, there is a "round-table" discussion for those who would like to dialogue with others about the Gospel reading and service. For more information, please email Scott Owings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
