What happens during church?
You will be greeted by a friendly usher, who will give you a bulletin containing information for the service and direct you to a pew that complies with physical distancing guidelines. Children are welcome.
Our worship is liturgical, that is, it follows a predictable outline based on ancient Christian practice. It includes Bible readings, a message (sermon, homily, or interactive time), prayers, hymns, and Eucharist (communion). You will be invited to stand, sing, pray, and read out loud with others, as well as to receive communion. Please join is as you are comfortable.
Where do I park?
There are a few church parking spaces behind the church on Purchase Street. On Sundays, street parking on Rock Street and Purchase Street is free; church visitors are also welcome to park in the Family Services Association parking lot just beyond the church on Rock Street. Enter via the doors on Rock Street or the kitchen door on Purchase Street.
How long does worship last?
The service normally lasts between 45 and 60 minutes.
Is there a coffee or fellowship time after worship?
Normally, we love to get together after the service. However, at this time, the diocese is not allowing any social gatherings before or after church.
Can I speak with the priest?
You can speak with the priest following the service or contact him through the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-672-5571).
