Worship at St. Peter & St. Paul follows the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer. Thus, our worship is “liturgical,” following a regular format of prayers and hymns and sacraments (similar in rhythm to worship in Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Methodist and some Presbyterian churches). Our standard worship service is the Holy Eucharist, (also known as Holy Communion, or the Lord’s Supper) and lasts about an hour depending on which service you attend. The Eucharist includes hymns, several readings from the Bible, a sermon and prayers (“The Liturgy of the Word”), and communion (“The Liturgy of the Table”). All baptized Christians may receive communion. To learn more about how and why we worship, including a walk-through of our service, Click Here. For an online Book of Common Prayer, Click Here. We usually use “Rite II” on page 355 (and “Rite I” in Lent, page 323). To hear or read sermons, Click Here.
