Road Closures and Festivals
Dear [First Name]
Just a reminder that there's a road race in the West End of Glasgow tomorrow so if you are in Glasgow and coming to St Mary's you might need to leave a little earlier than normal.
I incorrectly announced this as taking place last week but it is in fact tomorrow. Details of the road closures are here: http://www.greatrun.org/great-womens-run
Tomorrow is the Feast of Pentecost. Those coming to the 10.30 am service are welcome to wear national dress if they have it or bring something with them representing where they come from in the world. There will be an invitation to everyone to pray the Lord's Prayer in their own first language. The choristers will be singing in the choir tomorrow and there will be a presentations recognising their achievements at the start of the service. At the end of the service there will be a short congregational meeting to vote on a proposal to amend the constitution to allow the Vestry to co-opt diocesan members and allow for electronic decision making between meetings.
In the evening at 6.30 pm, three people will become canons of the cathedral at a special service. The Rev Cedric Blakey the Vice Provost will installed as a canon (as will subsequent vice provosts from now on). The Rev Gordon Fyfe will be installed as the Synod Clerk for the diocese and the Rev Prof David Jasper will be installed as the new Canon Theologian. Bishop Gregor is expected to be with us for this service and I will be preaching.
On Trinity Sunday - next weekend, there will be the usual services in the morning. In the afternoon at 4 pm, there will be a Three Choirs Choral Evensong in the University of Glasgow Chapel with the combined choirs of St Mary's Cathedral, St Mungo's Cathedral and the University Chapel Choir. In St Mary's at 6.30 pm, Choral Evensong will be sung by vocal consort Cantus Firmus.
The following Thursday is Corpus Christi with a Sung Eucharist with full ceremonies of the feast at 7.30 pm. (Please bring dry flower petals to the sacristy by 7 pm if you have any to spare).
Lots going on. Lots to enjoy!
