Episcopal Worship

Home / Episcopal Worship

Episcopal liturgy is based on ancient patterns of Christian worship but is contemporary in language and thought. We follow a lectionary that specifies scripture lessons (Old Testament, epistle, and gospel) for each day, in a three-year cycle. Usually the sermon is based on one or more of those scripture readings.

 

The church calendar proceeds in a cycle of seasons: Advent, Christmas, Epiphanytide, Lent, Eastertide, and the long season known as After Pentecost (or Ordinary Time).

 

If the Episcopal way of worship is new to you, please relax. The printed bulletin is your guide to where to find the various parts of the service in the prayer book (red) and hymnal (blue). We are formal but not stuffy!  Just be comfortable and let the beauty of the prayers and music fill your soul.
