At 11:00 (CET) on Sunday,27 February, the Eucharist for the last Sunday of Epiphany will be celebrated at Santa Margarita. This week, given the situation in Ukraine, we include prayers for peace, as requested by our Archbishops. You are invited to participate in this worship using the video above, by following the words (congregational parts in subtitles, or bold), sharing the hymns and prayers, and listening to the sermon. The presentation works as a video file, so you may control it (forward, back, pause) using the video controls. The service lasts about 51 minutes – longer than usual, to accommodate the prayers for peace.
A message from our Bishop, the Rt. Rev. David Hamid, regarding the situation in Ukraine:
Some people have asked about how to show solidarity to our folk in Ukraine, besides prayer of course. Archdeacon Leslie Nathaniel has been in conversation with the Christ Church key laity about this, and there will likely be some humanitarian needs that they may be called upon to address.Bishop David Hamid

The cost of maintaining the chaplaincy of Santa Margarita is completely self-financed locally, and during the closure of the church, there is no income from the weekly collection.
