Compassed About: Gifts for Discernment from the Celtic Tradition
Friday-Sunday, March 24-26, 2017
The words “compassed about” illuminate a prayer for All Saints Day in the Book of Common Prayer which boldly pronounces “who in the multitude of thy Saints hast compassed us about with so great a cloud of witnesses”.
Through their prayer, art and music, we’ll explore the “thin places” created by those who have gone before us, some of the Celtic saints whose lives can be for us a “compass”, blessing us with gifts for discernment for our life's journey.
Led by the Rev. Frances Drolet-Smith, Rector of St. Alban’s Parish in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and an Oblate of SSJD.
