The Holy Eucharist

The Holy Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday, using Rite I at 8:00 AM and Rite II with music at 10:00 AM. The 10:00 AM service also streams on Facebook Live. 

The Holy Eucharist is the principal form of worship in the Episcopal Church. The service follows a set pattern that is like those found in other liturgical churches, especially the Roman Catholic and Lutheran traditions.

Holy Eucharist, the sacrament of Christ’s body and blood, is one of two Sacraments of the church that are meant for everyone.  The other is Holy Baptism, which is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the church.  There are also five sacramental liturgies that may be celebrated as appropriate: Confirmation, Holy Matrimony, Ordination, Reconciliation of a Penitent, and Prayers for the Sick or Dying. The Holy Eucharist is celebrated by a priest. 

Parishioners assist during worship as Lectors, Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs), or Ushers; members of the Altar Guild prepare the altar before the service.  Anyone who is interested in serving may contact the Rector.

In the summer – from mid-June to the Sunday after Labor Day – we have one service at 9:00 am which is held outside on the labyrinth weather permitting.

Our hymns come from three books containing music from roughly 1500 years of Christian worship: the Hymnal 1982, Lift Every Voice and Sing II and Wonder, Love and Praise
