Worship in the Episcopal Church rests on scripture and the traditions of the elegant language of the Book of Common Prayer. While the worship might seem more formal than spontaneous, we reliably read scripture every time we worship together, and we follow the liturgy that has stood the test of time. Our worship is in letting the liturgy carry us along into a deeper spiritual awareness and connection with God.
If you were one of the millions of people who watched the wedding of Princess Kate and Prince William, you observed a wedding straight out of the Book of Common Prayer, quite old yet so familiar that almost everyone recognizes the beautiful language.
On the other hand, some of our traditional worship services are very informal, such as Mass in the Grass to celebrate families on Grandparents’ Day, and Cinco de Mayo during which we celebrate one aspect of our treasured cultural diversity.
