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. (Currently all worship is via Zoom without Holy Communion.  In person worship with Holy Communion will resume as soon as it is safe for all.)

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.
