You’re Invited to a Share a St. Patrick’s Day Celebration with Your Friends at St. Paul’s Tomorrow

March 15, 2014


Look for a special St. Patrick’s Day flavour at St. Paul’s tomorrow!

Irish_cloverWe’ll sing hymns with Irish tunes. There’ll be Celtic sources for several parts of the Liturgy (e.g., a Call to Worship based on St. Patrick’s Breastplate). St. Patrick will also feature in the sermon, including the story of why the shamrock is associated with him. And we’ll be sharing special St. Patrick’s Day refreshments after both Services.

Sure we’ll have a whale of a time!

In keeping with St. Patrick’s Day, John McIntyre has set the “Colour du Jour” to be any of the three in the Irish flag – green, orange, or white. It would especially be fitting to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing these colours, as the Irish government has said that in the flag, green represents the Gaelic tradition of Ireland, orange represents the followers of William of Orange, and white represents the aspiration for peace between them.

Our togetherness tomorrow will be a wonderful reminder to us all that the communion we have with our brothers and sisters in our Parish family of St. Paul’s and all the saints throughout the world and throughout time mean that this Irish wish for us forever will be fulfilled:

May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.

Embedded below is one of the hymns we’ll be singing at both of our Services tomorrow, “I Cannot Tell.”
