During COVID-19, our worship life takes a different shape from our normal patterns. To minimize the risk of infection and out of respect for each person’s safety, we are following the guidelines and counsel of our bishops and the Governor not to gather in person indoors. Likewise, the celebration of Holy Eucharist is suspended until further notice.
Our worship is streamed live through our Facebook page each Sunday morning at 10 A.M., including those (seasonal) occasions when we worship in person. In place of Holy Eucharist, we use a liturgy known as ante communion—that portion of the Eucharistic liturgy contained in the Liturgy of the Word in The Book of Common Prayer through the Prayers of the People, bracketed by corporate confession at the start, and closing with the Lord’s Prayer.
Although we are not singing when we are together in person, music is a meaningful and integral part of our worship. Hymns are provided via PDF and hymn texts are embedded in the weekly Order of Service. A copy of this Order of Service and selected music is emailed each week to our members and are available the day before worship as a PDF file on this page of our website for download. Intercessions for the week that follows are also available below for download:
All recorded services from Sundays and Feast Days are uploaded to our YouTube channel.
During Advent we encourage our members to make room for a daily discipline to help focus spiritually on the season of waiting and anticipation for the coming of Christ at his birth. The options listed below may be downloaded by clicking on the links.
