Holy Eucharist

201506-Summer-CommunionAt Saint Paul’s, our worship life centers around communion, or Holy Eucharist, and we offer three different services on Sunday Morning:

8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist

This is a spoken service of word and communion, based on the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), without hymns or service music. It is a quiet service intended to offer a tranquil start to the week. Some of our parishioners choose to sit in the chancel (near the altar), while others prefer to sit in the nave (body of the church).

9:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist

This is an informal service that takes place in the chancel and uses a variety of sources and musical styles, and is intentionally geared toward families with very young children. As with the 8am service, you may choose to sit in the chancel or the nave.

10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist with Choir

This service is our principal worship offering on Sunday, and is about an hour in length. Following the Book of Common Prayer, this service reflects our parish’s particular expression of the Episcopal tradition.  Saint Paul’s Choir sings at this service and it contains hymns and choral anthems, a sermon, uses Rite II (present day) language, and is traditional in nature but relaxed. Twice a month, our choristers (ages 8 and up) join the adult choir to form an intergenerational choir of almost 80 people. Families with children are very welcome at this service, and you are encouraged to help your child navigate through the worship sheet.
