Sunday Service, Rite II

Date(s) - 08/08/2021
10:30 am - 11:30 am

St. James Episcopal Church


The Rite 2 liturgies reflect more fully the influence of the liturgical movement and contemporary theology. Rite 2 liturgies tend to reflect greater sensitivity for inclusive language issues. The proper liturgies for special days (such as Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday), pastoral offices (such as the Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage), and episcopal services (such as ordinations) are printed in contemporary language in the BCP.

At St. James, the Rite is a full service including Acolytes lighting the candles, the Choir, Prelude/Postlude.   Layreaders read the first lesson, the Psalm, the second lesson and the Prayers of the People.  The celebrant reads the Gospel.   Chalice Bearers assist the Celebrant with Holy Eucharist.
