Iona Service

April 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Since St. Columba landed on the island of Iona in Scotland in 563, a church has stood on the site of Iona Abbey. It was from that Abbey that Christianity spread throughout Scotland and the north of England, and it was there that the Book of Kells was produced. For centuries, Iona has been a place of pilgrimage, one of what the Celts call “thin places”–places where God seems very present. Since the early 1900s the Abbey has been home to an ecumenical community (all Christian but of many different or no denomination) that worships and works on the island. Every day at 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. they hold a service in the Abbey–Celtic influenced but with strands of many different nations and forms of Christianity woven through it.

On Wednesday of Holy Week, join us at St. Peter’s for an Iona Abbey Worship service. We will pray, sing, and have Communion. I invite you to join us in our sacred space as we join with our siblings on Iona in worshiping God.

We invite everyone to journey with us through the season of Lent. Click here to view our full schedule of Lenten services and events. All events are in-person at the church unless otherwise noted. Masks and proof of vaccination are required. We hope there is something that will interest you and engage you this Lenten season.
