Sunday, 11 am - Santa Eucaristía, Rito Dos (contemporary language)
We worship on Sunday morning according to the 1979 Libro de Oración Común of the Episcopal Church. Before you sit down to worship, you will want to get a copy of the weekly insert that contains the readings for the day and the announcements in both English and Spanish. The weekly insert can be found on tables near each entrance. The order of service and the music are projected onto a screen near our musicians to make it easy for everyone to follow along.
The spirit of this service is lively and participatory, with lots of singing and clapping. Our music is from the Latin American tradition; and we have preserved many of the cultural traditions that people grew up with in Mexico, Ecuador, or Colombia, including Comunión Solemne, Las Mañanitas, and quinceañeras. We have a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the saints. On the second Sunday of every month, we do anointing or Sanación before Communion. So, anyone who grew up in the Roman Catholic Church will find the Misa in the Episcopal Church very familiar. If you get lost during the service, don't worry. Just ask us; and we'll be happy to help you.
All of the baptized from any denomination are welcome to receive Holy Communion. The language of the service may be that of the Episcopal Church, but the invitation to be fed comes directly from Jesus. If you or your children would prefer to receive a blessing instead of Communion, cross your arms over your chest when you reach the altar rail, and the priest will know to give you a blessing.
We hope that you have a wonderful experience worshiping with us, and that you will join us for refreshments after the service!
