Worship at St. Bede’s
8:00 am – Holy Eucharist Rite I
A quieter, contemplative service without music, using traditional language (“thee, thou, thy”).
10:15 am – Holy Eucharist Rite II
A more exuberant service including our choir (September through June), our Beckerath organ, and congregational singing, using contemporary language (“you, your”).
Children ages 3-11 are in Sunday school for the first half of the service; they join their parents for communion. Younger children are welcome in church, or they may be cared for by our professional nursery staff.
Wednesday, 8:00 am – Holy Eucharist
A simple service of Holy Communion that lasts about 25 minutes.
Our worship has deep roots in ancient Christian practice; some of the prayers we say date from the fourth century, and some of our hymn lyrics are even older. Episcopalians and Anglicans around the world share the tradition of the Book of Common Prayer, which at its heart holds that worship is “common,” shared between people and priest.
