The Holy Eucharist
At the center of our parish life is the Holy Eucharist, the identifying act of the Christian community. It is the principal act of worship on the Lord’s Day and other major Feasts. The Eucharist is the sacrament of Christ’s resurrection and his ongoing presence at work among us. In the Eucharist, Jesus continues to live in us and we in him. At St. Paul’s we offer a Radical Welcome from the Steps to the Table. Everyone is welcome to receive the Eucharist—no matter who they are or where they may be on their journey of faith.
The Holy Eucharist is offered twice on Sunday morning, each with its own flavor:
9:00am – Holy Eucharist including excellent preaching, wonderful music accompanied by a choral quartet and organ, and children’s program* following the Gospel reading; followed by coffee and time for fellowship
11:00am – Solemn Eucharist including excellent preaching, glorious music led by our superb choir and/or schola and choristers, and children’s program* following the Gospel reading; followed by coffee and time for fellowship
* Children rejoin the congregation at each service during The Peace so that all may receive Holy Communion together

12:00noon — Mondays in the Lady Chapel; followed by brown bag lunch and conversation in the Chittim-Howell House
11:30am – Wednesdays in the Lady Chapel
