Gaelic ecumenical service organized
BOULARDERIE — The public is invited to join the congregation of St. James Presbyterian Church to celebrate Gaelic Christian heritage. The ecumenical service will take place on Sunday, May 28 beginning at 3 p.m.
The minister in charge of St. James Church, Rev. Peter MacDonald, will be preaching. He is the son of the late Rev. Glenn MacDonald, who ministered for many years on the North Shore.
Since this service was first held in 2009, it has been the practice to alternate between Catholic and Protestant churches and preachers, beginning with Rev. Alan MacMillan at St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Parish in Judique.
On two occasions, St. James has had the privilege of hosting invited clergy from Scotland.
The Gaelic Ecumenical Choir, formed especially for Gaelic services, will be taking part in the service. In addition, the Mira Gaelic Choir will provide special music. After the service there will be a time of fellowship with refreshments.
