Interactive Religious Ceremonies and Prayers

We are all aware of the current situation concerning the coronavirus. To keep safe we have been asked to stay at home and only go out for essentials. Not only theatres, cinemas, and all major stores closed, but all religious centers are closed too.

This can be particularly hard for elderly people who will miss their Church services and other meeting groups which they attend every week.

Of course, you can watch TV religious programs and talk online to friends. Maybe read the Bible in your own house and so on.

But what about the services that you will miss that you usually enjoy listening to?

Below are a few Live Online prayers and Churches for you to listen to and watch.

Included are Christian, Jewish, Islam, Buddhist and Hindu links.

Benedictine Monks

The Benedictine Monks are one of my favorites. I often click on their site to listen to the sermons and prayers.

They are situated in Northern Ireland and have been there since 1998 after leaving the Abbey of Bec in France.

Their site is lovely. Not only do they share Prayers throughout the day which you can watch and join in, but they also have a shop and reflection corner, meet the monks, and read all about them.

Times of Prayer:

Office of Lauds: 6.45

Eucharist: 11.30

Office of None: 14.15 (Weekdays) 14.30 (Sunday)

Office of Vespers: 17.30 (Weekdays) 17.00 (Weekends)

Office of Vigil: 20.30

Below is another link to live services. There are a few churches to choose from here:

Jewish Worship

There are various sites to join in live services at Synagogues around the world. This one is called the Central Synagogue and is situated in New York City. It is an interesting site that shows the history of the Synagogue, times of prayer and so on.

https://www.centralsynagogue.org/worship/live_streaming for the main page:

And click on the link below to go straight to the Monthly Calendar.

Kotel Western Wall

One of my favorite online sites for Jewish worship is the Kotel. Better known as the Wailing Wall, or Western Wall. The site is called the Western Wall Heritage Foundation.

It is such a lovely site. Even if you are not Jewish it is well worth the visit. You can watch live as people pray at the Wall.

There are also cameras placed inside the wall to watch prayers, services, and learning.

I have been watching this site for a few years now, so I wasn't particularly surprised when I found out that I had a lot of Jewish ancestry.

The Western Wall site is fascinating. There is so much information there. From prayers, to meetings, calendars, tours inside the wall and so on. Even if you are only interested in the history, it is well worth checking out.

Just click on the link:

Islam

I have found a few live online prayer sites for Islam too.

Here are just a few that I think you will find suitable.

https://www.islamchannel.tv/live-tv/

The above shows a comprehensive guide to the times of prayer and all the information that you will find interesting.

https://www.islamchannel.tv/video-category/live-taraweeh-prayers/ Is another site that you may find suits your needs.

Buddhism

Watch the live streaming video from the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism Seatle on Sundays.

And check out classes online, and all about retreats.

Hindu

Hindu Prayers

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any live streaming for Hindu prayers. But I did find this site which you can read and learn about Hinduism and read some of their prayers and how to practice.

      Thanks Bill, it suddenly occured to me when I was checking out the Wall that maybe people couldn't get to them. I also love listening to the Irish Monks, in fact I think they are live now.
