Worship

The chief act of worship in the Episcopal Church is the Holy Eucharist (also known as the Mass, Holy Communion, the Sacred Liturgy, and the Lord’s Supper). Each Sunday morning at All Saints, there are two services: a quiet service without music at 8:00 and one with music at 10:00. In accordance with the discipline of the Episcopal Church, all baptized Christians are invited to receive the blessed Sacrament of Holy Communion at every Mass.

The full range of sacraments are part of life in the parish including Baptism, Holy Communion, Confirmation, Reconciliation of a Penitent (Confession), Matrimony, and Unction of the Sick. Also, the Anglican Communion teaches that from the apostles’ time, three distinct orders of ministry have been characteristic of Christ’s holy Catholic Church: bishops, priests and deacons. In the Episcopal Church ordination is open to both men and women, single, married, or celibate. In addition to ordained ministry, we are thankful for God’s gift of a variety of vocations including the Religious Life whereby the church is enriched by the ministries of monks, nuns, friars and oblates.

Parish Leadership – The Vestry

In the Episcopal Church, the leadership of a parish is shared by priests and lay people. At an annual meeting, members of the congregation elect leaders including four officers: a Senor Warden, a Junior Warden, a Treasurer, and a Clerk together with others to serve on a council known as a Vestry. The Vestry has primary responsibility for the finances and property of the church.
