Kirkin’ O’ the Tartan Service

April 28 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Please join in the procession of bagpipes, Beadle, Crucifer, and Tartan Flags as we celebrate The Kirkin’ O’ the Tartan service on April 28th at 8:30 and 11 a.m.

After the Battle of Culloden, 1746, the British forbade traditional Scottish heritage for nearly 50 years. During that time, the Scots would wear a piece of tartan cloth to be blessed by the clergy, in secret. In 1942, Rev. Peter Marshall began the Scottish American tradition to further bond the US and UK during WWII. The Kirkin’ O’ the Tartan service represents “a blessing of the family.” It is a worship service that allows us to reflect on the gift of our Presbyterian heritage and the gifts God has given us through our past, present and future kith and kin.

You are encouraged to wear your own tartan apparel – or kilt if you have one! Please join us at either 8:30 or 11 a.m. on April 28th for this special service!
