The tradition of blessing prayers has endured through centuries among the people called “Celts.” These blessings reveal a sense of the holy in every moment, in every thing, in every person. This is a way of living–of observing and celebrating, blessing and being blessed by the ordinary acts and encounters of life. Inspired by this tradition of Celtic spirituality and featuring the blessing poems of Beth A. Richardson (Christ Beside Me, Christ Within Me: Celtic Blessings), we will spend time this summer steeping in the blessings that surround us and live within us.

  • Do you want to learn more about Celtic Spirituality...

    ...and how it may help you to know God’s loving presence with you in all situations and places? We will study the book Christ of the Celts: The Healing of Creation by J. Philip Newell to deepen our understanding. Sundays after the service, beginning June 25th.

  • Be Blessed!

    After the service, there will be several Blessing Stations set up around the sanctuary. Come and be blessed by members of our congregation. 

  • Book of Blessings

    Available in the lobby, our Book of Blessings contains beautiful blessings for all occasions that are perfect for your personal meditation or to share. It also provides suggestions to help you go deeper in the practice of blessing.
