Special Services

Throughout the year our worship changes to reflect the different seasons of the church year, including a number of special services. You are invited to join us in-person or on our Facebook & YouTube pages.

Lent, Holy Week, and Easter

We mark our Lenten journey with Ash Wednesday (February 14, 2024) services of Holy Eucharist with the Imposition of Ashes, and are well-known for our beautifully moving Holy Week (March 24-30, 2024) services, which happen both inside and outside of the church itself! Our Palm Sunday (March 24) service begins in the courtyard of St. Andrew's School and includes a procession to the church. We continue the journey of Holy Week with services on Maundy Thursday (March 28) and Good Friday (March 29). The Easter Vigil service (March 30) begins across from the church as we kindle the new fire and bring it into the church. On Easter Sunday (March 31), we rejoice with a special music, a joyful service, lilies galore, and a large wooden cross that we flower on the portico and then bring inside.


Be sure to wear the color of the day - Red! - and join us as we celebrate the Holy Spirit on Pentecost (May 19 in 2024) with a joyous service. In early October, we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with a Blessing of the Animals, and remember our loved ones who have gone on before us by celebrating the feast of All Saints' on the first Sunday of November.


On the four Sundays that precede Christmas - December 1, 8, 15, & 22 in 2024 - we provide space for quiet contemplation as well as the joyous anticipation of Christmas. Our 10:00 a.m. service of Holy Eucharist on the Fourth Sunday of Advent usually includes our annual pageant!


All are welcome at our joyous 5:30 p.m. Christmas Eve service of Holy Eucharist. We'll gather in the chapel at 10:00 a.m. on Christmas morning for a service of Holy Eucharist. We celebrate the whole of the Christmas story with our service of Lessons & Carols at 10:00 a.m. on the first Sunday after Christmas.

Epiphany Lessons & Carols

We're known for this joyous service that wraps up the Christmas season in scripture and song, and for the festive reception that always follows the service! It's usually held in early January, on the Sunday evening just after the Epiphany.

Candlemas Evensong

We're added a new service this year: Candlemas Evensong! This beautiful, contemplative service commemorates the presentation of Jesus and the purification of Mary in the Jerusalem Temple with a lovely, music-filled service.
