Special Services & Holy Days


  • Fourth Sundays

    2017 Dates:  January 22, February 26, March 26, September 24, October 22, November 26, December 24


    The Fourth Sunday of the Month, we invite you join us for this Sung Eucharist with incense. Our most traditional service. Beautiful choral settings of the Mass sung by our Chamber Choir. This is a rare chance to hear great choral works composed for liturgy actually used in worship.  Mass settings include those by Darke, Victoria, Stanford, Sumsion, Byrd, Howells, and others.  The full Senior Choir, which usually sings at 11am, sings at 9:00am, while the Chamber Choir (our smaller group of paid section leaders and some volunteers), which usually sings at 9:00am, sings at 11:00am.

    Sung the Second Sunday of the Month, October through April.  Evensong is one of the jewels of the Anglican tradition, with sung settings of the psalms, evening canticles and prayers from the 1662 Prayer Book. The organ recital begins at 6:30pm, followed by Evensong at 7pm featuring the Chamber Choir. A reception follows the service.
