What to Expect
First and foremost, expect a warm welcome from us when you walk through our doors.
On Sundays we have two masses: 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
8:00 Mass: The Holy Eucharist, Rite I
Our 8:00 a.m. service is a “Rite I” mass, meaning it is celebrated using the original, traditional language of The Book of Common Prayer (similar to the way the King James Version of the Bible sounds); it is a low mass, spoken, and without music.
10:00 Mass: The Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Our 10:00 a.m. “Rite II” mass is a contemporary language (ordinary English) choral service, with organ music and hymns. From September to June, the mass is accompanied by an adult choir. Incense is used at this mass—a sign of the prayers we offer, as we lift our hearts to the Lord in worship.
During the 10:00 a.m. mass, nursery care for toddlers and babies is available for those wishing to use it. Please know that we are not anxious about the ‘ambient noise’ that our children make; children of all ages are always welcome in church. We welcome little ones among us, as Jesus did.
