St Mark's offers two types of Sunday services,
Holy Eucharist and Morning Prayer
The principal weekly worship service is the Holy Eucharist, also known as the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion. Worship in the Episcopal Church is said to be “liturgical,” meaning that the congregation follows an order of service and prayers that don’t change greatly from week to week during the seasons of the year.
All baptized Christians—no matter age or denomination—are welcome to receive Communion. Episcopalians invite all baptized people to receive, not because we take the Eucharist lightly, but because we take our baptism so seriously. Visitors who are not baptized Christians are also welcome to come forward during Holy Communion to receive a blessing from the priest.
As a rule, St. Markans enjoy the Holy Eucharist on most Sundays. However, on the first Sunday of each month we have a Morning Prayer service that comes from our rich tradition of communal prayer. As is the case every Sunday, we have readings from Holy Scripture and worship music but with a greater emphasis upon prayer.
An opportunity for people to receive confidential, individual prayer at the communion rail is provided. This invitation gives people a chance to respond to God’s Word and Presence and to receive the ministry of fellow Christians in the power of the Holy Spirit. Lives are thus touched and transformed.
