Marigold Nursing Home Ministry (Winter 2002-2003)
The Marigold Nursing Home Ministry is a service provided by the Licensed Lay Readers of the Grace Episcopal Church of Galesburg, Illinois. The Lay Reader reads Morning Prayer at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday. The service is a combination of Morning Prayer with the Form of Three of the Prayers of the People reproduced in large print so the residents of the home who are still able to read can respond with their part of the service. The Lay Reader also reads the Scripture Lessons for the Sunday and a homily from "Celebration, and Ecumenical Worship Response," a Roman Catholic publication.
