At 6:30 P.M. on Friday, March 28, St. James Cathedral dedicated its weekly ecumenical service to prayer for the victims of the tragic landslide in Snohomish County. In this service of prayer, chant, readings, and silence, we remembered all those who have died and those who mourn, as well as those who are still missing and the rescue workers on the scene.
The earth reeled and rocked;
the mountains were shaken to their base.
we pray to you for our brothers and sisters in need.
Receive the dead into your embrace.
Comfort those who wait for news.
Strengthen rescue workers.
Give courage to families who must rebuild their lives.
Show us how to be present to them.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Lord hear our prayer….
