Words from Wilma+ Holy Week 2021


Anyone who serves me must follow me, says the Lord, and where I am, there shall my servant be also. John 12.26


  • Maundy Thursday service with Communion at 7:pm in person worship- livestreamed- then posted to YouTube. As usual                Wendy will put up the links in the usual places.

    Please register to attend before 5: pm Wednesday– call Heather at 306 634 2113 or her cell 306 421 2457


  • Good Friday service – will be a taped service and will be posted on YouTube and Facebook on Good Friday at 11:am. As usual        Wendy will put up the links in the usual places.

There will be no Saturday Vigil – it is too difficult - with movement and singing and multiple readers guidelines can not be maintained, so we have decided to add bits of it to Easter Sunday morning service.

  • Easter Sunday service: 10: am This service will be in person and livestreamed. You must register before Friday at 5:pm using          the above phone numbers. The service will also be put up on YouTube as usual but….

    This brings me to the realization that this is Easter Sunday and the day that most all Christians deem holiest of the year. It is a      time when we most want to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion. Because of guidelines we are not able to have as many        in worship as might like to attend and receive Communion. Missing it for a second year is a hardship for Christians.


   So.


What I will do is this. If you cannot attend in person but would like communion do one of the following.


If you can not attend because of mobility – please call and tell Heather that you would like communion to be delivered and I will bring it to you on Easter Sunday, after you have watched the livestreamed service. (I’m sorry but I must keep this delivery to within Estevan and environs)


If you can not attend because of any other reason but are able to drive by St Giles after you have watched the livestreamed service – I will remain at the church for a couple hours and meet you on the sidewalk curb outside and give you communion.


**Please note that I have said communion after viewing the live streamed service. Communion in this way means that you are a part of the congregation and have prayed and worshipped with the rest of us, even if at a distance. **


If this past year has taught us nothing else, it has taught us to be adaptable! In some things I welcome the adaptation, and this is one of them. I really don’t want you to be missing out on something so important as Easter Communion, so hopefully this works for you.


Remember to call Heather though!! Before Friday!!


May you have a Blessed Holy Week,

Wilma+
