How We Worship

The celebration of the Holy Eucharist is an act of joy and praise, which draws its principal meaning from the Easter proclamation of the resurrection.

St. Andrew's celebrates the Holy Eucharist at six of our eight weekly services. The remaining two, Compline and Evensong, are sung services.

Services are currently being held electronically until further notice. We invite you to view our eService Bulletins and join us Sundays at 10:00 am on YouTube.

All who are drawn to God and seek Christ are welcome to receive communion.

We receive communion by extending our hands for the bread, either eating it and receiving the wine from the chalice or holding the bread and waiting for the small intinction cup in which to dip it.

If you have concerns about taking communion, please remember that the full benefit of the Sacrament is contained in receiving either the bread or the wine. Also, it is perfectly acceptable to exchange the Peace through a friendly wave or nod. Please use your best judgment to minimize risks to your health and that of those around you.

Consecrated rice wafers are available for those with wheat allergies. Please ask the priest at the time of your communion if you desire one.

The main entrance to the church is from the narthex, which serves as a lobby to the main sanctuary where the services are held. As you enter the sanctuary, your eye will be drawn to the altar area at the far end. The altar is the large rectangular table in the center, covered with a cloth, and decorated with candles and flowers. During Holy Communion, the bread and wine are consecrated on the altar. Behind the altar and on either side of it are rows of chairs where the clergy and choirs sit during services.

As you face the altar, you will also see the pulpit to its right. It is here that the service leaders and clergy read the scriptures and preach the sermons. To the left of the altar is a baptismal font, its prominent position symbolizing the centrality of baptism to our identity as Christians.

Children are a vital part of our congregation and are always welcome. Busy bags and books are available in the Narthex for use during services held in the church.

A nursery for infants through toddler age is available during the 10:00 am service, located on the second floor of the Parish Hall. During the school year, children and youth in preschool through high school are invited to attend The Church School at St. Andrew's from 9:45 am until they join their families in the service at Communion.

A service designed for families with young children is held each Sunday at 9:15 am in the Chapel. This service provides families with small children an opportunity to worship together in a child-friendly environment. It follows a traditional eucharistic format, yet the atmosphere is intentionally informal. If a toddler needs to walk around, let them go - someone will stop them before they head out the door!

Members of the parish serve at each service in various capacities: acolytes, eucharistic ministers, ushers, and as members of the choir. To learn more about becoming a Lay Leader in Liturgy at St. Andrew's please visit our Liturgical Leaders page.

Our Catherine St. parking lot is reserved for handicap parking on Sundays. We have accessible entrances to both the Sanctuary and the parish offices. The Parish Hall and church school classrooms can be reached via elevator (located in the lobby, next to the chapel).

If you have a hearing aid equipped with telecoil capability, please note that the church sanctuary has been equipped with this technology.
