Regular Sunday Services during Fall & Spring term
5 p.m. Eucharist in Anabel Taylor Hall Chapel
6 p.m. Dinner - ECC Lounge, in basement of Anabel Taylor Hall
Our life together is grounded in the weekly celebration of the Eucharist. Sometimes called Holy Communion or Mass, this ancient ritual brings us together to listen to scripture, be challenged through preaching, confess our faults and be forgiven, to pray for the world and to worship God through music and prayer. As Anglicans we try to walk the middle way - our services combine the majesty of a Catholic Mass with the hymn singing and emphasis on individual understanding of the Protestant tradition.
Our members take an active role in every service - greeting visitors, reading scripture aloud, leading prayers, serving as acolytes, setting up, cleaning up, preaching on occasion - and everyone does a lot of singing. New faces are always welcome - if you don't know anything about an Episcopal service, we'd be happy to show you the ropes.
We have been blessed with a long line of superb organists, the glorious acoustics of Anabel Taylor Hall Chapel, and many talented singers. Our schola (choir) is a fluid group made up mostly of undergrads and graduate students who lead the congregation in singing hymns, offer weekly choral anthems, and provide music for special services. Singers are welcome to join the schola at any time. If you are interested, please contact our music director, Jean Radice.
