Worship Times

Sunday Worship Service

10:00am - Our worship experience is for everyone. Children are always welcome in the service. During the program year (September - May), we offer children's chapel for preschool and elementary age children. During the readings and the sermons, children's chapel leaders share a story with children that is age-appropriate. 

Weekday Services

Wednesday at 11am

A service of Holy Eucharist and Healing takes place every Wednesday in the All Saints' Chapel. The lessons and homily follow the calendar of saints and exemplars found in Holy Women Holy Men (a supplemental resource of The Book of Common Prayer). The service lasts approximately 30 minutes. All are welcome. 

Description

Holy Eucharist

Holy Eucharist (Communion) is a regular practice in the Episcopal Church. Everyone is welcome to receive communion at St. Patrick's. We attempt to live into the example of Jesus who welcomed all people, so our altar is open to everyone seeking God. Communion instructions are provided during the service. Gluten free bread is available for those with gluten allergies. 

The Book of Common Prayer

The Book of Common Prayer (1979) (BCP) is the official liturgical guide for the Episcopal Church, USA. It helps us stay connected to our traditions. These traditions help us grow in faith and to feel the presence of God. A famous quote describing the Episcopal tradition is that "praying shapes our believing." The Book of Common Prayer provides the framework of our prayers, so it can be said to shape our beliefs. The Book of Common Prayer was first published in 1549 but it is a living book formed and reformed in response to the world. Within the BCP and its supplements are prayers and documents spanning the entirety of the human relationship with God, from creation to the present day. The weekly program at St. Patrick's services help navigate this foundational treasure.
