On Tuesday, January 19, 2021 St. James', Clinton, participated in the nationwide memorial for lives lost to COVID-19 by lighting up the church building and ringing our bell. We invited parishioners and community members to light a candle in their home and ring a bell on their front porch. We have been praying for those affected by COVID-19. Our participation in the nationwide memorial is an outward, active community response to what we have been doing as a faith community. We hope to share God’s love and care throughout our community and continue to share The Episcopal Church’s relevance in the lives of the people.
For the events in our national's capitol on 6 January 2021, we offer our prayers. In this season of Epiphany, God, may we "spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of God."
As has been our tradition, we offer Lessons and Carols on the last Sunday of the year. Thank you to the Collett quartet for the carols, and to our many readers.
We were blessed to have a musical medley prelude played by Bill Elliot prior to our Christmas Eve Service. Thank you Bill for sharing your talents with us.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this service possible. This is the full recording of the live-streamed 2020 Christmas Eve Eucharist. Father John presided from the church. This video begins with an introduction and then proceeds through the entire service, including a candle-light singing of "Silent Night." If you want to listen to Bill Elliot's musical prelude, that can be found on a separate video. We hope you have a blessed Christmastide.
Thank you to the children, youth, and caregivers who contributed a reading of Luke 2:1-20 for a Diocese of Central New York Christmas pageant.
