12th August 2011

Dear People & Friends of St. Clements,

Whilst August is a month like July, when many of our regular congregation are away visiting family & friends in their home countries, it was good last Sunday to welcome back a number of familiar faces who have returned to Prague having been away for most of July. These last two Sundays, we have also had several new faces join us for worship, some having been in Prague for a while & only just discovered us whilst others having just newly arrived here. I’ve added them all to the circulation list for this, my regular update as to what is happening at St. Clement’s, Prague.

Firstly, a reminder of our worship this coming Sunday.

Sunday 14th August at 11.00 – Sung Eucharist for the Eighth Sunday after Trinity

The Gospel reading is Matthew 15. 10-28 which both describes the healing of the daughter of a Syro-Phoenician woman & Jesus explaining what really makes someone ‘unclean’. It is a rather interesting passage and well worth reading in advance of coming to worship. As is always our pattern in July & August, there will be cool refreshments served after the service in the back of the Church.

Also this Sunday, the Old Catholics have a varied programme of activities around their Cathedral Church of St. Laurence on Petrin Hill.

14:00 Opening ceremony

14:00 — 17:00 Games for kids (Studna/Well)

16:00 — 17:00 Fairy-tale theatre ‘Inkognito’

17:00 — 18:00 Eucharist

18:00 — 18:30 Peregrin (concert)

18:30 — 19:30 Guests at the Lord’s Supper (a play by Ingmar Bergman — played by Theatre Sumus)

19:30 — 20:30 Housebroken Consort (Renaissance music and dance)

20:30 — 21:00 Birds (a large stilts’ performance—Studna/Well)

Everything will of course be in Czech but if you have a reasonable grasp of the language or have bilingual children, then why not drop by for an hour or two? My thanks to Sean Miller for translating the outline of the programme from Czech into English for me to copy & paste into this email!

Looking ahead to the Autumn

Our regular Midweek activities will resume in the week beginning Sunday 4th September which is also the day when Children’s Ministry will resume as part of our Sunday worship. In my next ‘Message’, I plan to give an outline of the programme for our Midweek activities for September & October. However, I can give details of one forthcoming event now, our next Ethics at Lunchtime.

 

Ethics at Lunchtime is a series of lunchtime discussions focussing on ethical issues in business and life in the Czech Republic sponsored by the British Chamber of Commerce in the ČR and St. Clement’s Anglican Episcopal Church. Ethics at Lunchtime is a regular event for those who wish to discuss ethical issues in business and life in the Czech Republic over a pleasant and informal lunch with a specific topic on each occasion.

Our next lunchtime discussion will take place at a new venue, Bellevue Restaurant, located across from Charles Bridge at Smetanovo nábřeží 18, Praha 1, on Thursday 15th September beginning at 12:30 with the following topic: “The Big Society – is civic participation essential to a properly functioning democracy?”

Everyone is welcome and each person will be responsible for paying Bellevue Restaurant for their own lunch (390CZK per person for a two course set menu including coffee and one soft drink). Registration for the event is via the BCC website  (it is not necessary to be a BCC member).

If your reading this somewhere in or around Prague, I look forward to seeing you on Sunday at St. Clement’s. If your reading this elsewhere in the world, I hope you’re enjoying a good holiday/vacation and look forward to seeing you again in the next few weeks.

Best wishes

Ricky
