World Wide Communion

The tradition began in the 1930’s when the minister of a Presbyterian Church in the USA encouraged a few other Christian churches in his town to celebrate Communion on the first Sunday in October.

The idea grew and was endorsed by the National Council of Churches and continues to exist to promote Christian Unity and ecumenical cooperation.

So, at Trinity we gather round the Table on October 2. We will imagine gathering with others in great cathedrals, and tiny home churches all around the world. We will add our prayers for the world, and with one voice sing praises.
