Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans

Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans

On Sunday, Oct. 27, we will incorporate a Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans into our 10:30 a.m. Classic worship service. The Scottish Gaelic word “Kirk” means church, and in this usage, it means “blessing.” Tartans are the traditional plaid emblems of Scottish clans. Taken together, it means blessing – kirkin’ – of the clans or families, each represented by a tartan. As we offer a blessing of our families on this Sunday, we encourage anyone who has tartan or plaid to wear it.
