Weekday Worship Schedule

Tuesdays, 7:00 P.M.: Centering Prayer/ Chapel

 

* Rite I & Rite II are forms of worship found in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). The BCP contains all the standard spoken information of a service including prayers, responses, and the words of consecration.   The BCP permits all attending the service, even those not familiar with the Episcopal liturgy, to follow along and participate in the service.

The order of the service is always the same with readings from the Bible followed by the sermon, the prayers and then the Eucharist, which is also called Holy Communion. At St. Dunstan's anyone who has been baptized is welcome to receive bread and wine. Others may participate by going to the altar rail to receive a blessing.
