7th May 2015

Dear People & Friends of St. Clement’s,

First and foremost this week is to remind you that our worship will NOT be at St. Clement’s Church this coming Sunday, but at the Old Catholic Cathedral of Sv Vavřince on Petřín Hill. Please don’t tell me that you didn’t know as I’ve given this information in my three previous Weekly Messages! It was also clearly indicated in the Weekly Bulletin in Church last Sunday.

Sunday 10th May at 11.00 – Joint Anglican – Old Catholic Eucharist in the Old Catholic Cathedral of Sv Vavřince on Petřín Hill.
The service will be in both English & Czech. Bishop Dušan will be the celebrant & I will be the preacher. The readings will be those set for the Sixth Sunday of Easter – Acts 10. 44-48, Psalm 98, 1 John 5. 1-6 and John 15. 9-17. If past experience is anything to go by, there will be a wonderful spread of refreshments following the service

How to get to the Old Catholic Cathedral?

Below is a map of Petřín Hill. The Cathedral is the church symbol above the word ‘Petřín’ on the map. The best & most scenic way is via the funicular railway from Újezd which is shown on the map. Once you arrive at Petřín station at the top of the hill, you will see the towers of the Cathedral ahead of you on your right.

It takes two – three minutes to walk from the funicular station to the Cathedral. Please be aware that because of the number of tourists wanting to use the funicular, there is often a queue and 10-15 minute wait at Újezd. Please give yourself plenty of time for the journey. Alternatively, take the tram to Pohořelec near Strahov Monastery, and walk up Strahovská to the Cathedral.

Please note that the Old Catholic Cathedral is NOT the Roman Catholic Cathedral within the walls of Prague Castle!

This coming Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to share fellowship with Czech Christians, improve your liturgical Czech 😉  , and enjoy the beauty of Petřín Hill. I look forward to seeing you there!

Then in the week following, there will be NOT be a Study Group on Tuesday evening because two days later is Ascension Day and I don’t expect people to turn out twice in the same week!

Thursday 14th May at 19.00 – Sung Eucharist for Ascension Day
Although not a public holiday in the Czech Republic, despite being so in every neighbouring country, I do hope many of you will still join us to mark this important day in the Christian Year and celebrate the ascension of Jesus into heaven at the end of his forty days of resurrection appearances.

Then the following Sunday, we will go back to our normal pattern of worship.

Sunday 17th May at 11.00 – Sung Eucharist for the Seventh Sunday of Easter
With parallel Children’s Ministry and following worship, Coffee Hour in the hall on the third floor of Klimentská 18. More details in next week’s ‘Weekly Message’.

One other notice for this week.

A taste of Pilgrimage …
A reminder of my wife Sybille’s announcement in Church last Sunday.
Would you like to know what a pilgrimage is really like?
Are you willing to walk 15 to 20 km each day?
Can you carry all what you need in a back pack?
Would you like to explore a lesser known part of Germany?
Are you interested in Ecumenism, Spirituality, Culture and History?

In short, do you want to walk  in a small group part or all of the Ecumenical Pilgrims Way from the Polish/German border in Görlitz to the former inner German border in Vacha?

If you are interested in taking part, please either email Sybille, sy(at)sybilleyates(dot)com , or speak with her on Sunday, so that an informational and informal preliminary meeting can be organized.

That’s enough for this week.

Best wishes
