Holy Eucharist | Rite I

Our early worship service on Sunday uses the traditional, eloquent and especially-poetic language from Rite I of The Book of Common Prayer.

This order of worship emphasizes contemplation and reflection.

There is no music during this service, leaving quiet spaces for meditation within the prayers, Scripture readings and sermon.

As with both our Sunday-morning worship services, the Eucharist is the high-point of our worship.  Generally, our 8:00am worship lasts a little over one-half hour.

Every Sunday morning, Saint James’ offers two opportunities to worship together as a community. While both worship services follow the same general format, including celebrating the Eucharist (Communion), each service speaks to people a bit differently.

At any service at Saint James’ where the Eucharist is offered, we invite everyone who feels called to come forward to receive the bread and wine.  If you are more comfortable doing so, you may also come to the altar rail with your arms crossed over your chest to receive a blessing
