Liturgy at St. Joseph closely follows that of the Episcopal church and can be broken into 3 parts

 

 

 

The Liturgy of the Word is the portion of the service where we gather together in song and hear scripture readings. The Episcopal service has one reading from the Old Testament, a Psalm, a reading from the New Testament, and a reading from one of the Gospels. Following the readings, there is a sermon from the priest or a reflective response from the congregation.

The prayers begin with the Nicene Creed where, “we stand together with Christians throughout the centuries and throughout the world to affirm our faith”. The Nicene Creed is followed by the Prayers of the People. During the Prayers of the People we offer prayers for our church, our local community, and the world focusing on how we can affect change and offer hope to those in need. The Prayers of the People allow for the community to offer intercessions and thanksgivings to God. The Prayers end with a confession of our sins, an absolution, a special prayer of healing for those who desire, and the passing of the peace where the congregation is encouraged to share the peace of God with one another.
