Lenten Noontime Prayers Start Thurs., March 7
Each weekday during the Lenten season, the Great Litany will be prayed at 12:00 Noon at Christ Church. The Noontime service will begin on Thurs., March 7 at 12 Noon, and will occur each weekday through Friday April 12. The service will last 15-20 minutes, will be led by staff members and Lay Eucharistic Ministers, and will include a brief opportunity for mention of those who are ill.The Great Litany is the earliest liturgical worship service translated from Latin into English by Archbishop Thomas Cramner, and first published and authorized for use in the year 1544. Included in every Prayer Book since 1549, this series of petitions and acknowledgments of our shortcomings has been used by Anglicans in seasons of penitence and crisis, as well as historically for springtime crop planting prayers, known as “rogation” for more than four centuries.
