Worship Services are held at 8:00 A.M, 10:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. each Sunday.

The 8:00 a.m. service.  This service is a quiet, simple, and reverent celebration of Holy Communion using Rite II from the Book of Common Prayer, with no music and a brief homily. It is perfect for those who desire an early service lasting approximately 45 minutes.

The 10:00 a.m. service.  This service is a joyful celebration of Holy Communion that incorporates worship, preaching, music and ceremony in the best of contemporary Episcopal tradition. The liturgy is participatory in nature, focuses on congregational singing, and includes our Parish Choir with quarterly singing by the children’s choir and uses ritual, and prayer to open the mind and heart to the magnificence, transcendence, and sovereignty of God.

The 5:00 p.m. service.  Embodying Celtic ceremonial and musical traditions, the service draws on ancient and new liturgical music and texts based in the Celtic tradition, material from the Iona Community, and other sources. 
We welcome all to this innovative, beautiful and restorative service in Maginnis Memorial Canterbury Chapel.

Prayers for healing and anointing are held the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, after each of the three services in St. Joseph’s Chapel.  

 

ANGLICAN CHANT

For those who were at the 10 a.m. service on Sunday (10/1), you may have noticed we’re singing the psalms using Anglican chant. There’ll be more information in the upcoming edition of The Herald, but for those who are interested in learning how to participate in the weekly psalm and have never learned Anglican chant, Interim Minister of Music Michael Sanchez made a video that will help explain the principals of chant.
