Mark your calendar for the 10:30 am service on November 11 at St. Bartholomew, Mayfield Village! The Scottish Heritage Association of Northern Ohio (SHANO), in conjunction with St. Bartholomew, will host SHANO's annual Kirkin' of the Tartans, a time-honored Scottish tradition in which Scots, people of Scottish heritage, and people who simply love Scotland bring a piece of tartan to church for presentation and blessing during the service. The service will include prayers typically read during a Kirkin' as well as bagpipe music together with the usual Great Thanksgiving and Eucharist.
Following the service, there will be a ceilidh (party) in the parish hall that will feature Highland dancers, bagpipers, and a drummer. Refreshments including traditional Scottish pastries are included. In addition, there will be a collection of new, comfort-sized fleece throws to be donated to the GriefCare Centers throughout Northeast Ohio. Any donation of the type will be appreciated.
