Morning Prayer

The backbone of worship in the Episcopal Church is the Daily Office, a collection of prayers offered throughout the day, beginning with Morning Prayer, a quiet, sacred service that can be done individually (for there is always someone else praying with you) or together in a group. Please join us for time of reading scripture and offering prayers.

This can involve exploring how our heart and soul is touched by…

Our young people will gather together with an event which will continue their focus this year on “All Creatures Great and Small … the Lord God Loves Them All.” We will go to the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter and read books to the dogs, which calm them down, help to socialize them, all of which helps the animals to be more ready and appealing to be adopted to their forever homes. After the event, we will come back to church…

This is an opportunity for those who lead worship to come together and plan, reflect, and imagine. This is a time for people to share their own experiences of worship and to work always to create meaningful and moving worship experiences for all parishioners, ranging from the quiet spoken service at 8 a.m. to the festive youth-filled service at 10 a.m., the Holy Week services which walk us through the last week of Jesus’ life, to the quarterly Contemplative Eucharists…
