CHORAL EUCHARIST
Our principal parish Rite II Eucharist with music led by the SsAM Adult Choir, occasionally assisted by the SsAM Treble Choir or guest choirs.  This service is where you get the full creative impact of the SsAM liturgies and get a sense of the mission and purpose of our congregation.  Choral settings of the Eucharist (Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, etc.) are frequently offered, and the congregation participates in a wide variety of hymns and service music.  Although there is a strong tradition of classical music and Anglican chant, the service is often diversified with spirituals, Gospel music, jazz and world music depending on the season or special feast day.

12:00 Noon
Coffee Hour Fellowship, Food and Refreshment in the Auditorium

All are invited to the auditorium to join us for fellowship at the conclusion of the 10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist.
