11 a.m. Heritage Sunday Liturgy (Morning Prayer) (livestream)
May 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
In 2019 Saint Mark’s began what was intended to be an annual tradition: Heritage Sunday, an opportunity to celebrate and give thanks for all the generations who have come before us in the community of Saint Mark’s, Seattle—from the founders of the parish in the nineteenth century, to those longtime members of the community who still bless us with their experience and wisdom today.
Like last year, the 11 a.m. service will again employ elements of the liturgy that would be familiar to generations past, including music, prayers, vestments, and the order of service itself. Drawing on prayers spanning nearly 500 years of Anglican worship, we will pull out the stops for a special celebration. Former senior wardens serving in three different decades will read the scriptures. Former Dean The Rev. Fred Northup will be guest preacher. Dean Thomason will officiate. Special music will frame the joyful occasion, including a rousing postlude of Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man” with organ and percussion.
