Continue your celebration of Christmas by marking the feast days during the Twelve Days of Christmas. On Thursday, December 28 during our regularly scheduled noon service of Holy Eucharist, we will mark the Feast of the Holy Innocents.
We remember today, O God, the slaughter of the holy innocents of Bethlehem by King Herod. Receive, we pray, into the arms of your mercy all innocent victims; and by your great might frustrate the designs of evil tyrants and establish your rule of justice, love, and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
