12:10 pm High Altar



O Lord God, whose blessed Son our Savior gave his back to the smiters and hid not his face from shame: Grant us grace to take joyfully the sufferings of the present time, in full assurance of the glory that shall be revealed; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Solemn Eucharists are offered at 12:10pm on Monday through Thursday during Holy Week.

Service Details
This relatively austere Eucharist will be familiar to those who attend the 9am Eucharist on Sunday mornings. Its tone is reflective and penitential. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, please come in, as the liturgy will help you enter a frame a mind for what is to come later in the week.

The service involves three sacred ministers and the Gentlemen of the Choir. All baptized Christians are invited to the altar rail to receive the Sacrament. The leaflet, with additional details, becomes available on the bottom of this page a few days prior to the service.
