Worship With Us
We gather in worship every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. EST. The Church Calendar unfolds through the year, from the joy of Christ’s birth at Christmas through the sorrow of Good Friday and the triumphant Easter resurrection. The Calendar also reflects the tempo of modern city life with its recurring opportunities for reflection and service. Plan to attend. You will always find a warm welcome.
Six times a year, we celebrate Holy Communion in the sanctuary of our church. These are World Communion Sunday, Advent I, Lent I, Easter, the Last Sunday in May and Maundy Thursday. The weeks following our Sunday morning communion services we hold a smaller celebration of Holy Communion in the chapel of the sanctuary following the regular 11:00 a.m. EST service.

Easter and Lent
The season of Lent is a time for reflection and meditation on the sacrifice that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, made for the world. His death for our sins and His rising again for our new life shape this season, which begins with sober reflection and culminates in the joyous celebration of the Resurrection.
We invite you to share the observance of Lent and Easter with us at The Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul. Lenten Chapel Services are held every Thursday from Feb 15th to Mar 22nd, as well as Lenten Lunches, Palm Sunday Worship Service, Maundy Communion Worship Service, Good Friday Morning Worship Service, Good Friday Choral Service, Easter Morning SONrise Service, and Easter Sunday Communion Worship Service.

Join us for our Taizé Services – every third Wednesday of the month from September to June. In the midst of our hectic lives, many people long for the peace and refreshment that only God can give. Our Taizé Service of Prayer, Contemplation, and Song offers the chance to gather quietly in meditative common prayer using the beautiful and simple songs of the Taizé Community in France. Serene and uplifting, the music of Taizé helps us to deepen our sense of prayer and of God’s presence.
All are welcome to this quiet and simple prayer service.
