Celtic and Nordic Worship Services

Sunday Evenings at Pilgrim Lutheran Church

Celtic Contemplative Worship and Nordic Contemplative Evening Prayer are mainstays of Pilgrim’s Saint Clair Sunday Evening worship and events. These candlelight services, held from early fall until late spring each year, open doors to worship that embrace cultures and times beyond our own, feature vocalizations and acoustic music evocative of each theme, and highlight scripture and historic and contemporary poetry and prose.

All Sunday evening services are at 6:51 pm at Pilgrim Lutheran Church, 1935 St. Clair Ave., St. Paul. For more information, go to, or call 651-699-6886

The Feast of Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene is the apostle to the apostles, not a prostitute.  She is the witness to Jesus’ death and resurrection in all four gospels.  Women and men all over the U.S. celebrate her feast, praying for full acceptance of women’s place and gifts in the Church.  We will pray, sing, listen to the gospels, and bless each other with spices.  We will use a FutureChurch prayer service.

July 22, 7:30 am

Gather near outdoor labyrinth at Carondelet Center; if raining, please meet in G-1 at the Carondelet Center.  Planners: Mary Kaye Medinger & Joan Mitchell, CSJ.
