Rite I liturgies are traditional language services and Rite II liturgies are contemporary language services.
Episcopalians are “people of the book,” meaning that we use the Book of Common Prayer for our services, or liturgies. At St. Paul’s, we have a Saturday liturgy (5 p.m.), and two liturgies on Sunday morning (8 and 10:30). All of these liturgies are “Eucharists,” meaning that we have communion.
The Saturday 5 p.m. is very casual, with the congregation sitting in the choir area of the church. The 8 a.m. liturgy on Sunday morning uses Rite I in the Book of Common Prayer, which is distinguished by its use of Elizabethan English (“thee and thou”); this liturgy includes only one hymn. The 10:30 a.m. liturgy is in contemporary language (Rite II) and the choir leads us in singing.
During the week, we offer Eucharist at 12:05 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. These liturgies are very short, normally no more than thirty minutes long.
We also have special services on holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Easter, and others. Please check our website or contact the church office (816.931.2850) for information.
