SERVICES & EVENTS
Services of Holy Eucharist (by extension) are normally at
11:00 on Sunday mornings with Rev'd Kirk Weisz.
See the schedule below for when services are held in Mariakirken or on Zoom.
For now in-person coffee hour in Mariastuen, Sunday school for children, and the small choir are suspended,
but will resume when safe. However, see below for details about Chaplaincy wide Sunday school on Zoom.
All are welcome to a simple service of midday prayer (10-15 mins) on Wednesdays at 12:00 via Zoom (virtual). The service is liturgical in form and is combined with a time of fellowship afterward (30 mins). A chance to say hello to others, pray with them and wish one another well during the week. Please contact our priest Kirk to join the virtual gathering.
Children's Zoom (Choom) Sunday 18 April, 9:40-10:15
Children of all ages (ie. 1-13) are invited, along with their parents, to this month's Chaplaincy wide Choom service, where Faith will be explored with music, a video, Bible reading/story and a craft.
Please contact our lay reader Iris to join the virtual gathering.
Mary's Book at the Annunciation - what does it mean? Thursday 25 March
Congregant Laura Saetveit Miles led us on an informal yet insightful discussion of the aspects behind why many pieces of art depict Mary holding a book when Gabriel announces to her the conception of Christ, given that a book is not mentioned in the biblical passage in Luke 1:26-38.
You are encouraged to read the 14 page introduction to Laura's book The Virgin Mary's Book at the Annunciation: Reading, Interpretation, and Devotion in Medieval England (Boydell & Brewer, 2020).
And if you would like further information about where to purchase this book, please email our priest Kirk.
N.B. Services of Holy Eucharist with Rev'd Kirk Weisz are by extension.
