WHAT ARE THE SERVICES LIKE?
Our Sunday service is Holy Communion (also called the Eucharist or the Mass). Whether said or sung, the service is broken into two main parts: Word and Sacrament.
The first, centers upon hearing the Word of God in readings from the Old Testament, the four Gospels, and New Testament letters. A sermon expounds upon the readings of the day and applies it to our lives.
The second half, during which we are spiritually nourished to continue our Christian journey, centers on the Eucharist, (meaning ‘Thanksgiving’). It is a sacrament in which bread and wine are consecrated and consumed. Christians in good standing in their own church are welcome to receive communion or to receive a blessing from the priest at the altar. The service concludes with a blessing and a dismissal that sends us out into the world to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
DOES ST EDWARD'S RUN A SUNDAY SCHOOL?
Yes. During the scholastic year, Sunday School lessons usually take place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month during the 10:30am morning Sung Eucharistic.
