SERVICES

Worship is an encounter with the living God revealed in Jesus.

Our worship is a joyful journey into the Good News of Jesus Christ that engages our hearts and minds, nourishing us for the week ahead. We invite you to join us as we seek God and God's blessings for our lives.

St. Luke's has two services every Sunday.


8:00 am
Holy Eucharist Rite I

10:30 am
Holy Eucharist Rite II

Holy Eucharist Rite I

This is an hour-long, quiet, and meditative service of Holy Eucharist using Elizabethan English. We use Rite I from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer which includes three readings, a sermon, and Holy Communion (also sometimes referred to as The Lord's Supper, Eucharist, Mass). There is not normally music at this service. All Baptized Christians, regardless of denominational background, are invited to receive Holy Communion. Following the service, refreshments are served in the Narthex of the church, and a time of fellowship is observed.

Holy Eucharist Rite II

This service lasts slightly over an hour, and is a musical, festive, family friendly service of Holy Eucharist, which includes three readings, a sermon, and Holy Communion (Lord's Supper, Eucharist, etc.). Familiar, contemporary English is used from the Rite II form of the Eucharist in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. All Baptized Christians, regardless of denominational background, are invited to receive Holy Communion.

Additional Services

1 / Morning & Evening Prayer

Morning Prayer, sometimes called Matins, and Evening Prayer, the rough equivalent of Vespers (and also known as Evensong), are the two main Daily Offices in the churches of the Anglican Communion, prescribed in the various editions of the Book of Common Prayer and other Anglican liturgical texts. Both may be led by a layperson and are recited by many Anglicans including many members of The Episcopal Church.

Morning and Evening Prayer services are offered weekly at St. Luke's in the Prayer Chapel. Join us for Morning Prayer on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 8:30am or Evening Prayer on Wednesdays at 5:30pm.

2 / Evensong

Evensong is a choir-led version of the Evening prayer office which typically takes place on the last Sunday of the month at 4pm. A new choir, the Evensong Choir, has been formed for the program which includes St. Luke's choir members and members of the wider community. Please contact us if you are interested in auditioning for this choir. Evensong services have paused for the summer and will continue on Sunday, September 29.

3 / Formation

Forum takes place between Sunday's Rite I and Rite II services, meeting in the library at 9:15am.

Bible Study at 9:00am on Tuesdays will continue in the fall.

Bibles

The Daily Office

In keeping with the teaching of Jesus and, indeed, the whole of the Bible, the 1979 Book of Common Prayer encourages us to pray daily and offers us a rich program of daily prayer arranged for use in the morning, at noon, in the evening, and before retiring. 

Saint Luke's encourages the development of a habit of daily prayer and we find that the forms of prayer in the Book of Common Prayer, with their appointed readings of psalms and scripture lessons, provide us with an excellent program for regular daily prayer. 

From Epiphany to Pentecost, we will be hosting the Daily Office in person. Morning Prayer meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 8:30am. Evening Prayer meets at 5:30pm on Wednesdays.
