Cross Ceremony

On December 21, 2004, members of School Street UMC participated in a ceremony blessing the site of our future sanctuary at Cressey Road. 

 
This prayer was prayed on that occasion:

 
Lord, may this sacred image, be a sign of You, our invisible God, a sign of your continuous presence here on this site.
 
May this cross be for us who see it a doorway to You divine Heart.  May it be for us a gathering place for prayer in times of sorrow and trial, in times of great rejoicing and blessing.  Help each of us to treat it with reverence and respect.  For those who work here let it me a reminder of your love.
   
Help us not to become so dulled by the familiarity of time that our eyes fail to see it’s meaning and purpose on this spot.  May all that look upon this sacred cross be blessed by You, our God.  With reverence, we acknowledge its place of honor among us that it may give You glory and honor and be  for us a blessing.  Amen
