THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Many of the services conducted at SsAM are based on the Book of Common Prayer. There are numerous services in the book for various occasions such as Holy Eucharist, Evening Prayer, Special Feast Days, Funerals, Weddings, Baptisms, Confirmation, to name a few.  For each service, a liturgical structure is given along with options for customization.  There are various choices and suggestion for scripture reading, canticles, hymns and prayers.

Episcopal services are similar to those of the Roman Catholic Church and to many Protestant denominations, all based on ancient tradition. If you are familiar with those services, ours will not seem new to you. But even lifelong Episcopalians find themselves wondering about parts of the service. If you have a question, feel free to ask your neighbor in the pew, or ask the priest, or explore one of the links below.  Also, click here to take a look at our philosophy on liturgical design.

PRAYERS

In addition to the prayers from the Book of Common Prayer and those written by congregation member Christina Brennan Lee, we hope you will pray these prayers throughout the week.
