How We Worship

Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name;
Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. (Psalm 96:7-9)


According to the Book of Common Prayer, ministry is not just the obligation of the bishops, priests and deacons, but the responsibility of every member of the Church. At Grace Church there are myriad opportunities to participate in worship services.

Traditional Eucharistic liturgy and fine music are hallmarks of worship at our parish. There are four celebrations of Holy Eucharist every Sunday during the academic year, including two choral Eucharists (which means there is both music and Holy Eucharist), and celebrations of Holy Eucharist Tuesday through Thursday. During the Summer season there are three celebrations of Holy Eucharist every Sunday, including one Choral Eucharist. For the worship schedule, click here.

In addition, Grace has a growing cross-cultural ministry to the Spanish-speaking people in the surrounding neighborhoods, including a Sunday celebration in Spanish of La Santa Eucaristía.

Many Episcopalians make daily use of the Office of Morning and Evening Prayer contained in the Book of Common Prayer. You may visit our Internet Resources page to access the online versions of the Daily Office, as well as links to the Bible and many other resources we hope will be of interest to you.
