Service Schedule

Worship at the Chapel of the Cross

Our liturgy is taken from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer supplemented with materials from Enriching our Worship and Common Worship, a worship resource from the Church of England. The 8:00 a.m. service will follow the Rite I liturgy (thee and thou). This is a spoken service, with no music. The 10:00a.m. service follows Rite II liturgy which includes modern language (you and our), except for services held on the 3rd Sunday of the month which will follow Rite I (thee and thou). The 4:00 pm service is a Rite II service, in the chapel, and includes organ music and hymns, but no choir.

Contemplative Worship

Periodically throughout the year we hold special contemplative services. With the help of our Spiritual Life Guild, in consultation with our clergy, we transform our worship spaces using greenery, candlelight, and atmospheric music that allows for a liturgy of quiet and peace. The worship service is traditional in form and much of its content, but moves at a slower pace, with periods of silence, and times of musical meditation and poetry, as well as prayers that emphasize the holiness of all creation in their language.
