Choral Mattins & Festal Eucharist

Add to My Calendar

Sunday, February 17, 2019
11:00 am High Altar



O God, the strength of all those who put their trust in thee: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because, through the weakness of our mortal nature, we can do no good thing without thee, grant us the help of thy grace, that in keeping thy commandments we may please thee both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Included in worship this morning are hymns sung by the congregation and choir, additional music sung exclusively by the choir, lessons, prayers, a sermon, and a Rite I Mass. All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion. This week the service begins with Choral Mattins, which occurs three times a year at the 11am service. Mattins allows us to offer some extraordinary works of the Anglican choral tradition that our choir normally does not have the opportunity to sing. If you are unfamiliar with Mattins, consider looking over the service card posted at the bottom of this page.
