Sundays - 8am and 10am
Low Mass is celebrated at 8 a.m. every Sunday in the Lady Chapel. Although the service is celebrated according to Rite I, the feeling of the worship is relaxed and intimate.

The services seeks to elevate the experience of worship, to offer a glimpse of the transcendent, through a liturgy, traditional in form but vibrant in spirit, beautiful music and preaching grounded in scripture inspired by scholarship and in touch with the reality of contemporary life.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
