Worship

St. Brigid's Contemplative Worship

Worship is the center of our life at St. Augustine’s. In worship we open up ourselves to God, as we embrace the invitation to become Christ’s disciple. Through worship we commit our life to God in prayer and consume spiritual food at Christ’s Table. Worship allows the Holy Spirit to capture our being – allowing us to actively share the love of Jesus Christ with one another, our community, our city, and the world.

Each of our weekly services celebrates the Holy Eucharist (Communion), but each also has its own distinctive style. Find which one is right for you:

Sunday 8:00 a.m. – Holy Eucharist Rite I

The Rite I service is the most ancient form of Episcopal Worship and follows oldest traditions of the Book of Common Prayer with the rich tones and rhythms of 17th century English. A contemplative service without music, the Sacrament of the Holy Communion is the center of worship.

Sunday 10:30 a.m. – Holy Eucharist Rite II

The Rite II service is both traditional and innovative, employing more diverse and inclusive language when referring to the Divine and humankind. A musical liturgy, this service features chant, organ, choir, and a variety of instrumental ensembles. The Sacrament of the Holy Communion is the center of worship.
