Festal Eucharist

Add to My Calendar

Thursday, May 1, 2014
5:30 pm High Altar



Almighty God, who didst give to thine apostles Philip and James grace and strength to bear witness to the truth: Grant that we, being mindful of their victory of faith, may glorify in life and death the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

This evening, in lieu of Choral Evensong, we offer a Festal Eucharist for Saint Philip and Saint James. All baptized Christians are invited to rail for Holy Communion. The order of service is similar to what occurs at a Sunday 9am Sung Eucharist, with some variations. Please see the service card posted to the bottom of this page for details.
