Emmanuel is somewhat unique in that we are able to worship God together every day of the week. In addition to our public Sunday services, we pray the ancient hours of the church on weekdays, keeping praise ascending to God in the downtown with a constant rhythm. Evening Prayer takes place Monday - Saturday at 5:15pm (Mass on Wednesday) and we pray Morning Prayer Monday - Friday at 7:00 a.m. (Mass on Tuesday) (Learn more about the Daily Office.)
Sunday morning Mass forms the heart of our Christian community life; each week the congregation and clergy offer two services in a classic, historically rooted style. Holy Eucharist Rite I is used in an intimate spoken service at 8:00 a.m. At 10:15 a.m., Rite II is celebrated with a choral service that offers many members of our community to contribute by reading, singing, leading prayers, serving the bread and wine, greeting, and more. In the Episcopal Church we invite all Baptized Christians to God's Table to receive communion.
During the program year, some weeks children ages three to six gather for a separate children's chapel service during the first part of the 10:15 a.m. Mass. Detailed information about this service for the children can be found on the children's chapel page.
Each Sunday service is followed by a coffee hour, providing an opportunity for worshipers to build relationships in a casual setting. For more information for guests and visitors, visit our I'm New Page.
