Worship

Note: Sign-ups for Sunday worship can be found here on our Welcome page using the "Worship In Person" button.


Our life together flows to and from the liturgy and sacraments. Our worship is grounded in the Book of Common Prayer, which saturates us in Holy Scripture, prayer, and music. From the ringing bell that begins our service to the dismissal after the final hymn, the Episcopal liturgy engages all our senses and our whole bodies. Though our worship is led from the front by priests and an altar team and from the back by musicians, we believe that our liturgy is the work of all the people.


The Holy Eucharist, also called the Lord's Supper or the "Mass," is our principal act of worship on Sunday. We offer Holy Eucharist at 12:15 each weekday in our Sanctuary (no sign-ups required).  Eucharist is the Greek word for thanksgiving, and in it, we offer and receive gifts, proclaim and listen, confess and are sent back into the world to love our neighbors. In addition to Eucharist, we gather almost daily on Facebook for Morning Prayer, periodically for Evensong (sung Evening Prayer), and nightly on Facebook for Compline.


What to expect on an average Sunday.

Rain Plan for Outdoor Services

If there is a 70% chance of rain or more for the time of the scheduled service, you will be notified by email at 6 p.m. on the prior evening. If the grass is drenched from rain on Saturday or if it is raining lightly on Sunday at the time of the service, the service will be moved to the parking deck closest to the sanctuary. In the event of unexpected heavy rain on Sunday morning, we will cancel the service and notify you by text an hour beforehand.

Morning Prayer and Compline

Mondays through Fridays at 8:30 a.m., we gather on Facebook for Morning Prayer, also from the Book of Common Prayer. Morning Prayer may have been established in the abbeys and monasteries, and adapted for the laity by Thomas Cranmer, but its roots can be traced back to Judaic times. The service can be led by either laity or clergy.


Mondays through Fridays at 9pm, we also gather on Facebook for Compline. Look under Daily Office on the left menu.  Compline is a  lovely set of night prayers and the perfect way to end your day.


We also offer the St. B's Daily email with a condensed liturgy, the day's readings, and a reflection written by individuals in the St. B's family. Sign up to receive the St. B's Daily here.
