Russell Initiative

Russell LSM took the initiative to post the lectionary daily readings for the team and Council mainly, to enjoy, in the hope of maintaining continuity through Lent and Easter.

It was suggested to feed back in response to the readings and this has been happening from some.

Todays reading from Jeremiah  talked of ‘ deserted cities’ so pertinant.

Blessings to all Paula Franklin, Russell LMSU

Holy Week at Home Resource

Adaptations of the Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday Rituals for Family and Household Prayer 

 These prayers are not intended to replace the liturgies of Holy Week. Rather, they are a sincere effort to cultivate some of the rituals and spirit of Holy Week in our own homes when public celebration might not be possible. 

 These resources are prayerfully prepared by the editorial team at Liturgical Press.

Prayers at a Time of Death

Prayer at Time of Death EP

Any person is permitted to lead this form of prayers.  It can be used at the hospital bed or other place of death, or in your home if access to the deceased is not permitted.

These prayers are essentially taken from A New Zealand Prayer Book He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa p813 with some of the options removed, and the Committal added.
More rich resources in A New Zealand Prayer Book He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa are found from p813 to p869.
