Holy Spirit Episcopal Church is a Eucharistic community: our common life of fellowship, prayer, and service is grounded in the weekly communal celebration of the sacrament of bread and wine. The word "Eucharist" means "to give thanks." We gather at the altar to give thanks to God for the blessings of this life, especially for the gift of love given to us in Jesus Christ our Lord.
A simple celebration of the Eucharist using Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer. A quiet and reflective service, with no music and a sermon, lasting about an hour.
Sunday morning – 10:15 a.m. Holy Eucharist
Approximately an hour and fifteen minute long service designed specifically to be accessible to adults and children of all ages and those new to church, with a sermon and organ-accompanied congregational singing, also with our full choir from September - May. Meet the worshippers and enjoy coffee and refreshments after the service in the parish hall (or in the courtyard, weather permitting, in the summer). Nursery care is available (ages infant - 3 years). Church School for ages Preschool through 9th grade is offered during the service, September - May. Ask an usher if you need directions for the nursery or Church School.
Sunday Evening - 8 p.m. Compline
First Sunday of the month, October - May
Darkened and candlelit, our church is the ideal environment for this chant-based evening prayer service featuring members of the Holy Spirit Choir. These are the church's bedtime prayers, and they mark that transition from day into night. We pray Compline on Sunday evening as a transition before the beginning of the week, as a way to reflect, renew, and refresh.
