Holy Communion at Pride 2018

Interfaith Worship at Pridefest at 10:00am

On Sunday June 24, the rector has declared that our principal service will be downtown. Holy Communion is joining with other congregations of many faiths in celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride. We will gather at the main stage  of the Pride Festival at 10am. You can enter the mainstage area near the corner of of Pine and Tucker. Our clergy and choir will be participating alongside religious leaders and musicians from across the region. Join us for this celebration. (We will still hold two simple services at Holy Communion that Sunday at 8am and 10:30am for those who for cannot attend the service downtown, but our principal worship will be at Pride).

Come early and help usher!

We are looking for a few Holy Communion-ites who can come to the Mainstage at 9:15am on Sunday to help point folks in the right direction. We’d love it if you had a Holy Communion t-shirt on. Email the rector if you can help usher!

All Hands on Deck for Parade Prep!

We will meet at the church Saturday, June 23, from 5-7 p.m. to eat pizza, blow up balloons, make posters and sort our “throwables.” This will be lots of fun and give us a chance to talk through logistics for the parade and service.

Join the interfaith choir

Holy Communion and Metropolitan Community Church of Greater St Louis (MCCGSL) are organizing a choir to lead the music worship at the Interfaith Service at this year’s PRIDE Festival on June 24th. This will be a great way to get to know our fellow musicians in St. Louis, and also to embody the belief of interfaith worship. You can still join in! The last Rehearsal will be held Thursday June 21 at 7pm at Metropolitan Community Church in Soulard. You don’t need to be a current member of the choir to participate.

After worship, join in the parade.

We’ll make our way together after worship to the Episcopal Church’s spot in the parade lineup, and we’ll march through the streets to celebrate and bless our LGBTQ+ community. We will gather for the parade at 11am in Kiener Plaza. Look for the Episcopal Church banners and Holy Communion t-shirts!

Don’t miss out on the fun!

Email the rector with any questions.
