— Blessing of the clan

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1015 E. Main St. in New Albany, along with the Scottish Society of Louisville, hosts its 8th Annual Kirkin’ O the Tartans, 10 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 10, at the church. A piper and drummer herald the entrance of the clans into the sanctuary. During the regular service of Holy Communion, The Beadle of the Kirk [Church] pronounces a special blessing of the clans. A Scottish style luncheon will be served after the service.

Why do we celebrate clans and tartans? The American Episcopal Church got its start after the Revolutionary War with help from the Scottish Episcopal Church. Since America no longer had ties to the Church of England, we needed the Scottish bishops to pass the apostolic ordination to our American bishops. In Scotland the clansmen demonstrated true brotherhood and the clan was the family. The tartan is a symbol of this love and togetherness. In our Kirkin’ service, we remember ancient times, as well as past and present kith and kin, while asking God’s help and blessings in the future.
