It was five hundred years ago that the Episcopal Church broke off from the Roman Catholic Church. There were political reasons why that happened, like the fact that King Henry VIII wanted to get a divorce and the church wouldn’t give him one, but for many people the problem was that there seemed to be aspects of the Roman Catholic Church that didn’t fit the New Testament, and they wanted to get rid of those aspects of the church. But that didn’t mean they abandoned the creeds or all the prayers. They wanted to get back to the early centuries when Christians were pretty much agreed about the Christian faith.

During the pandemic, we gather online instead of on-campus for our corporate worship and prayer. We use a modified version of the Morning Prayers, Rite II from the Book of Common Prayer. Our preaching team provides sermons and guest preachers, and Paul, our Music Minister, provides hymn accompaniment on the piano.

We begin Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm with Evening Prayer using the psalms, readings, and prayers from our sisters and brothers at Forward Movement. Immediately after prayers, we hold a study, considering the readings, psalms, and prayers for the upcoming Sunday.

We pray and sing together borrowing the service bulletin for Evensong from our St. Barnabas Chorus. Come join us for a half hour of prayer to unwind from the day. On Wednesdays, evening prayer is followed by bible study on the same meeting link.
