Worship at St. John's
Our worship is based on traditional Episcopal liturgy and comes from the Book of Common Prayer.
Our services fall between "low Episcopal" and "high Episcopal." We believe in well-done, reverent, liturgy but do not have the physical acts, bells, and incense that mark a "high Episcopal" service.
Our primary service is the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the sacrament of Christ's body and blood, and the principal act of Christian worship. The term is from the Greek, "thanksgiving." Jesus instituted the Eucharist "on the night when he was betrayed."
Saint John's has Mass, at which the Holy Eucharist is celebrated, on Saturdays at 5:30 p.m. and Sundays at 9:00 a.m. All baptized Christians are invited to receive the body and blood of Christ. Services are conducted at other times to observe Holy Days and life events such as weddings and funerals.
Music is an integral part of our Sunday Mass, holy days, and special celebrations and we encourage all to sing. We use the Episcopal Hymnal, Wonder Love and Praise, and Lift Every Voice and Sing, all of which are found in the racks in the pews.
