Worshipping the Lord in the beauty of holiness is the work of the people and the definition of the word liturgy. Our 8:00 service is traditional, without music, and follows Rite I of The Book of Common Prayer.

Built on the solid foundation of former St. Paul's musicians, the Music Program at St. Paul's is deeply rooted in the Anglican and Episcopalian musical traditions. We source our hymnody from the Hymnal 1982 as well as supplem…Read More »
Life Events - Sacraments
Baptism. Communion. Marriage. Funerals. At these extraordinary times, we celebrate them as sacraments. According to the Book of Common Prayer, sacraments are "outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace." We look forward to sharing these special sacramental moments with you.
