Worship

Our life as a Christian community is grounded in the sacraments and daily prayer. As a church in the Anglican Communion, Saint Joseph’s worships using the Book of Common Prayer. Following these ancient liturgical traditions, our Sunday morning Eucharist is composed of Scripture readings and the proclamation of the Word, followed by the celebration of Holy Communion. All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Communion (all of our Communion Bread is gluten free). Those who are not baptized are welcome to receive a blessing.

Children of any age are welcome at all our services.  While we have nursery facilities available, we do not currently have nursery staff as our members currently bring their children into worship.  Should childcare/Sunday school for children arise as a need in our community, we will work to meet that need! Please let us know if you would like childcare during our service.

A Liturgy Committee meets seasonally to decide liturgical changes that best reflect and embody the focus of each season.  We will occasionally use a Eucharistic Prayer from Enriching our Worship or a Prayer from the worldwide Anglican Communion, as approved by our Bishop.
