MORE about Worship at Trinity
(for current Episcopalians -- we call this page "expert mode")
you're a practicing Episcopalian, you may want to find out what our worship is
like in terms that you already know.
Here's a summary of how we worship at
High church vs. low church?
We lean somewhat toward the high church side -- at least for this geographic area,
where we're the highest church around. At our main Holy Eucharist, we
have our choir (year-round) and organist, the celebrant frequently chants with sung
choral responses, we sometimes ring bells, you can light a votive candle if
you wish, but (due to a severe allergy of one of our
long-time choristers) we use incense only on rare occasions.
Which Prayer Book and which Rite do
you use? We use the current (1977) Book of Common Prayer and the
1982 Hymnal (occasionally adding hymns and service music from Wonder, Love
and Praise, as well as service music written for us by our Organist/Choir
Director). We normally use Rite I at the 8 AM service, and Rite II at
the 10:30 AM service, but in Advent and Lent and whenever we do
Morning Prayer we tend to use the more solemn Rite I.
