Wonder. Love. Praise.
Worship is time spent giving honor and praise to God. It is the primary work of the church. Worship feeds us so that we can feed others. It is time that reminds us of who we are, and who we are called to be. It is a time for healing and wholeness, a time for solace and quiet, and a time for communion with others and with God. St. Luke’s offers a wide variety of worship opportunities: some more formal, some more casual; some filled with music and activity, and some more quiet and contemplative.
The word “worship” is a combination of the English words “worth-ship” which means assigning worth and honor. The word “liturgy” is a combination of the Greek words “laos” (people) + “ergon” (work). Using the richness of our Anglican tradition, our worship is both ancient and modern, grounded in the past yet informed by the future. Our sacraments, our doors, and our hearts are truly open to all. We invite and encourage you to join us in one of the many opportunities for worship here at St. Luke’s.
- 7:30 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II in Emmanuel Chapel, in-person.
- 10 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II in Cathedral with the organ and the Cathedral Choir. This is our largest worship service. we sometimes experiment with different liturgies and often use the most recently approved inclusive language liturgies. On High Holy Days, we use incense. This service is offered in-person and live-streamed via YouTube, Facebook Live, and on the web.
- Wednesdays at noon. Prayer Zoom.
- Thursdays at 4:30 pm. Contemplative Prayer via Zoom. Contemplative Prayer, a prayer of silence, is also known as centering prayer, listening prayer, breath prayer, and prayer of the heart. This service is an opportunity to open your mind and heart to God. We begin with a short scripture reading and spend 30 minutes in silence together.
