This concludes the Holy Women/Holy Men series of festal services in celebration of holy women and holy men or marking other notable feasts in the life of the church. These added to St. Paul’s annual observances, from All Saints through Ascension and Pentecost, among others.
The series opened on Saturday, September 17, with a 9 am Communion service in honor of Hildegard of Bingen, mystic, poet, composer, doctor, and scientist. The service was led by Mark Stamm, ThD, Professor of Christian Worship at SMU’s Perkins School of Theology. After the service, Dr. Stamm offered a lecture about the service as part of Perkins’ Houston offerings at St. Paul’s.
