St Mary's Church, Marshalswick

St Mary's is an Open Church - Open to God, Open to You

21 June 2020               St Alban 

This Sunday is the Second Sunday after Trinity but, as Monday 22 June is St Alban's Day, instead of using the lectionary for the Second Sunday after Trinity, we are going to celebrate St Alban and will join in the celebrations from the Cathedral instead of holding our own service.

From St Albans Cathedral              Live from 10am on Sunday and available online thereafter

Hear from Parish Priest, Broadcaster, The Rev'd Richard Coles, as part of a special live streamed service at 10am on YouTube. Our local MP Daisy Cooper will also feature, as well as other churches from around the world that have links to Alban.

This special service will be immediately followed by a celebration for children, including an Alban puppet show, a short reflection and a chance to join in with some singing and dancing.

As well as the Service above, the Abbey also has a page The Alban Pilgrimage Re-imagined with links to lots of information including story of St Alban, St Amphibalus, the legend of the roses (and a video on how to make your own rose), the pilgrimage route and a poetry evening this Sunday night.  

Our Children's Worship in the Hall continues to meet online on Sunday morning as they have since late April.  Their activities for each week can be found on the page for that Sunday. Some evidence of their work can also be seen in Peppercorn Place , currently flames for Pentecost and Trinity symbols. The children have already been making red roses ready for St Alban's Day.
