Worship at

St. Mary Magdalene

Generally speaking our worship follows traditional Anglican liturgical forms – most services are formal without being stuffy - with a strong music component.  We are interested in exploring other forms of worship and music. Services listed below (other than those conducted by Deacon Fran) are currently on hold except for Sunday at 10:00 a.m. during this transition period.  We hope to reinstate them with our new Rector.

Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
Holy Communion using a contemporary form of language.
This service is about an hour and a quarter, features a sermon, a choir, and includes congregational singing.

Silent Prayer and Meditation:
This is offered every Tuesday afternoon in the Church. Those who gather arrive so that they are ready to begin at 3:30 with opening prayers together, and then 20 minutes of silence.

Special Services:
Easter Sunday features a joyous and well attended service which includes a special story for the younger members of the congregation.

In August we offer a Jazz Mass in collaboration with the PEC Jazz Festival. The church is always packed for this service which combines our liturgy of Holy Communion with the freedom of Jazz improvisation.

Our service of Nine Lessons and Carols signals the beginning of the Advent season. In this service, the Christian story leading up to the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings or lessons. These lessons are interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns, and choir anthems. A similar service of lessons and singing takes place on the first Sunday that follows Christmas.

On Christmas Eve the Candlelit Communion Service begins a magical celebration with special music and a Christmas message
