On Sunday, September 6 (Labor Day Weekend), St. James’s will gather online, with the Diocese of Virginia, for a pre-recorded Morning Prayer Service led by our bishops. Bishop Goff will preach and Bishops Brooke-Davidson and Taylor will be there, too. This will be in lieu of our regularly recorded Sunday service.
The Diocese wants to gather with you – and wants to give our priests and pastors a break. As you know so well, the clergy of our diocese have been working heroically since early March with online and outdoor worship, pastoral care, and formation, all in a strange new world of electronic connection. The Diocese honors their commitment and hopes that you will be as eager as the Diocese is to create a tiny sliver of real Sabbath time for our clergy.
The Diocese will broadcast the service, Sunday – September 6th, via the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia Facebook page at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and their YouTube page at 8:00 a.m. Please mark your calendars for this worship service with the 60,000+ members of the Diocese of Virginia, and many friends and families. Can’t wait to see you there!
