Celebrate Pentecost with us! St. Bede will be moving from Zoom Morning Prayer to Zoom Ante-Communion until we are able to open. We hope the change in liturgy will be more familiar and allow us to sing more hymns.

Ante-Communion is the Liturgy of the Word from the Eucharist, without the Great Thanksgiving or communion of the people. It includes the first part of the Eucharistic rite through the prayers of the people.
