Grow Inwardly in faith
Worship at Calvary
Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Start your Sunday morning with a quiet Eucharist (Rite II from the Book of Common Prayer) in the side chapel of the church.
Individuals and families of all ages enjoy this service with easy-to-learn worship music, multi-sensory worship opportunities, and a simple Holy Communion said around an altar built to meet the child’s perspective. This service takes place in Hannaford Hall.
Calvary Community Hour
In corporate worship, we unite ourselves with others to acknowledge the holiness of God, to hear God’s Word, to offer prayer, and to celebrate the sacraments. At 10:00AM, we extend that call to unite ourselves with others, growing in faith through Calvary Community Hour. A hybrid Formation and Fellowship Hour, parishioners from all of the services connect over coffee and formation offerings. Find out more here.
Holy Eucharist with choir and organ
This Rite II service from the Book of Common Prayer features reading from Holy Scriptures, the chanting of the Psalm, a sermon based on the scriptures, and the celebration of Holy Communion. Organist and Choirmaster Howard Helvey directs the musical offering at this service, with the parish choir singing at services between September and May. Hymns for this service are taken from the Hymnal 1982 and from Lift Every Voice and Sing.
Worship is the heart of our faith and the foundation of our community. It is beautiful, stately, inspiring, and festive, and welcomes the participation of all persons
As a liturgical and sacramental church, we celebrate the sacrament of baptism, and we baptize infants as well as adults. We also gather around the table each Sunday with bread and wine, to celebrate Christ’s risen presence among us.
Music is a vital part of our church and community life. Our music program, both on Sundays and at special events, is outstanding and inspiring. Our organist and music director Howard Helvey is both an excellent musician and an accomplished composer. The parish choir sings enriching the worship environment with the gift of voice.
We encourage the involvement of both lay and ordained persons in our worship services, believing that the ministry of all the baptized is vital to the church.
Our worship follows the Book of Common Prayer. This book also reflects our Episcopal ethos and theology. So, if you want to know what we believe, come worship with us!
