Easter 2017, what a glorious day! Easter Sunday Brunch at Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church in Rockland, Maine.
+Rev Lael Sorensen will continue conducting morning prayer at 7 a.m. in the Choir Stalls in the Sanctuary every Tuesday. Participants are encouraged to then continue the practice on their own time throughout the week. This reflective prayer service offers a meaningful focus for the day and the upcoming week. Use of daily prayers to mark the times of the day has been a traditional practice in Judaism and Christianity. The monastic form includes matins (at midnight or cockcrow), prime (the first hour), terce (the third hour), sext (the sixth hour); none (the ninth hour), and compline (bedtime). After the Reformation, in the Anglican (Episcopal) tradition, the eight monastic offices were reduced to congregational Morning and Evening Prayer.
