Kirkin o' the Tartans

November 30, 2014

St.Luke's Anglican Church will hold its annual "Kirkin o' the Tartans" on the Feast of St. Andrew (Patron Saint of Scotland) during the Mass beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday November 30, 2014. The event will also herald in the Advent Season.

The "Kirkin" (blessing) is traditionally instituted in America by Scotland born  and Chaplain to the U.S. Senate; the Rev. Peter Marshall in 1941 to honor our Celtic ancestry and seek Almighty God's blessing and providence for the future. Please bring your tartan to the Mass for the blessing (even just a swatch of the cloth will suffice; Irish and Welch as well as Scots!)

Following the Mass, there will be a feast of Scottish fare to include the legendary Haggis! (American style) and other great foods. We will enjoy the pipes and drums of the internationally acclaimed Jefferson Pipe Band (watch processional of 2013 here http://bit.ly/1oZpo8D). This was a well-attended and enjoyable event last year and we look forward to an even better event this year. Bring the family and participate (Jefferson Pipe Band 2013 during the Feast http://bit.ly/11ySIsr.

FOR THE EPISTLE.  Jeremiah xxiii. 5.  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.  In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely:  and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, The LORD liveth, which brought up  and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

GOSPEL.  St John vi. 5.  When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?  And this he said to prove him:  for he himself knew what he would do.  Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.  One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes:  but what are the among so many?  And Jesus said, Make the men sit down.  Now there was much grass in the place.  So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.  And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.  When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.  Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.  Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
