Our Sunday celebration of Word and Prayer and sharing the bread and wine of God’s Table involves members of the clergy, staff, vestry, and several of the worship ministries of the parish and other interested parishioners to develop the worship life and experience of the congregation with “an adventurous spirit within the Anglican tradition.”
