Worship for Easter 2, with Fr. Randy Johnson
Good Friday Worship, with Fr. Randy Johnson,
is accessible here (via YouTube).
For Palm Sunday, we have been graced with a gift from our friends at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in St. Paul: the Gospel passage via YouTube.
The narrator is St. Matt's member Peter Thomson, an amazing actor who has appeared often in Guthrie and History Theater productions. As he has done in past years for his parish, he memorized the Passion narrative for the Gospel appointed for this year and brings it alive for Palm/Passion Sunday.
Our profound thanks to Rev. Blair Pogue and to Peter for sharing their gifts with us.
In our worship, we are open to the new, while valuing and maintaining our traditional Episcopal liturgy.
St. Christopher’s, rather than high or low, has a broad-church worship style. Our liturgy usually follows Rite II, with other approved liturgical sources. The Holy Eucharist is at the center of worship, whether at the contemplative 8 a.m. Sunday service, the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service, in which music plays a prominent part, or the Wednesday noon service. (Summer service is at 9:30 AM.)
The sermon, whether offered by the priest or deacon, enlightens, challenges, encourages and inspires the congregation. A variety of music, from ancient to contemporary, is presented by our talented music director, choir and our bell choir.
