Although COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings of more than ten people have been lifted, our Sunday Eucharists will be conducted as Zoom gatherings for the foreseeable future. Please check your Living Water email each week for our liturgy schedule, Zoom links and any updates as to when we may gather again in sanctuaries. This information will change, so be sure to check each week.

If you are not on our Living Water email list, please contact us for further information on our weekly liturgies:

All are welcome at our table where we will pray and sing and share  Communion together, looking forward to the day when we may once again gather in person.











A Prayer to Begin
Yet Another Year of Unknowing


God of All Beginnings, we pray … 

For healing...prepare us for surprises;
for strength...prepare us for surprises;
for vision...prepare us for surprises;
for transformation...prepare us for surprises;
for messengers and messages...prepare us for surprises;
for community...prepare us for surprises;
for acceptance of ourselves and others...prepare us for surprises;
for making room at our tables...prepare us for surprises;
for Truth-seeking...prepare us for surprises;
for support...prepare us for surprises;
for Common Ground...prepare us for surprises. 

Walk with us, O Holy Journeyer,
as we question and welcome,
as we challenge and invite,
as we discover and understand,

as we see, touch, taste, smell, and listen for the Newness awaiting us in this new year.

May we, Your Holy People, walk together into this new year,
confident that your Spirit accompanies and protects us.


(Adapted from a prayer written by Sister Mary Ann Barret, O. P.)
