SACRAMENTS:
OUR FORMS OF WORSHIP

WORSHIP AT ST BARTHOLOMEW'S

No matter who you are or where you come from, you are invited by the people of St. Bart's to break bread with us.  There are a variety of rituals that we observe, called "sacraments," that are part of each service. We make resources available to help newcomers follow along. There are also special sacraments that can be requested as needed. 

HOURS

SUNDAY SERVICES

8:00 A.M. --  Holy Eucharist (No Music)

10:00 A.M. -- Holy Eucharist (Music)

10:00 A.M.  -- Children's Sunday School

9:00 A.M. --  On the 3rd Sunday of each month, we have only one service (with music and Sunday School) followed by a potluck lunch.

At each service, we use the Book of Common Prayer and the weekly bulletins (white paper for standard use, colored paper for large print) to guide participants through the songs, readings, announcements, and other parts of the service.

 

The Book of Common Prayer can be found in the pews of the church. Bulletins can be found at the main entrance to the church.

EUCHARIST

At all of our services, the Eucharist is the center of our liturgy -- a liturgy which brings ancient ritual together with modern life. Learn more about the role of the Holy Eucharist in The Episcopal Church by watching this video.

other SACRAMENTS

The following are the additional sacraments that are offered at St Bartholomew's. These sacraments mark special occasions, and may require coordinating with church staff in advance.

 

Please contact the rector or the main office for further information or questions.

WEDDINGS

PASTORAL VISITS
