St. Anne’s offers many opportunities through the week for you and your family to join us in worship services.
A Hearing Loop has recently been installed in the church to better serve the 57% of people over 60 who have significant hearing loss. The Hearing Loop provides clean, clear sound without a headset and sends the voices of clergy and readers directly into the hearing aids of people sitting in the pews. If you have hearing loss but no hearing aids, ask an usher for a Loop Receiver with earbuds which you can use during the service.
Weekend Services at St. Anne’s
8:00 AM Holy Eucharist, Rite I
This is a quiet service without music. The designation “Rite I” refers to an older style of language in continuity with older forms of worship. For instance, the pronoun “thee” is used to refer to God. Sometimes this is called “traditional” or “more formal” language, but actually “thee” was the more familiar form of address, signifying the wonder of God’s drawing near to us and our being able to address God as we would someone close to us. This service has a sermon and communion each week, and is usually about 50 minutes long.
9:30 AM Holy Eucharist, Rite II
This is a lively service in which we especially look forward to and plan for the presence and participation of children. This service has a sermon and music, including congregational singing of hymns, our great choir, organ, and other instruments on occasion. Smaller children are invited to participate in the Sycamore Tree, a liturgy of the word for children, which takes place during the service. “Rite II” refers to the use of regular, everyday language in our worship. This service is usually 60 minutes long.
11:15 AM Choral Holy Eucharist
This is a more formal service (although you do not have to dress formally to participate!) and includes a sermon, music, choir, and the use of sanctus bells. Parts of the worship service are sung, rather than spoken. It has a more quiet feeling than our 9:30 service, in which it is easier for some worshippers to enter into a sense of stillness and centeredness before God. On the fourth Sunday of the month, Morning Prayer is used as the liturgy of the word before communion. This service is usually 60 minutes long.
5:30 PM Worship Service
This 30 minute worship service includes music, prayer, and scripture. Come as you are–leave enriched and refreshed, ready for the week ahead.
If you can’t get the kids out of bed, if your Sunday mornings are your only quiet time in the week, if you mean to get to church but rarely make it, our 30-minute 5:30 PM Sunday evening service may be for you. Come as you are.
Bring the kids in their soccer outfits or their jammies. Just come.
Evening Prayer Monday-Friday 5:30 PM
Monday – Friday at 5:30 PM, we gather in the chancel of the church to say together this distinctively Anglican service. Unlike our Eucharist on Sundays, Evening Prayer is not led by a priest but instead is led by volunteer lay people. All are welcome to join us. Our Wednesday Evening Prayer service is conducted in Spanish.
