“It is in the process of being worshipped that God communicates his presence to men.” – C. S. Lewis
“Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.” – Psalm 96:9
For over 2,000 years, the central act of Christian worship has been the Holy Eucharist (also called Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper, or the Mass). During this time of prayer, preaching, and singing, we offer to the Lord our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, while also receiving from Him the precious gift of Jesus’ Body and Blood. As Anglicans, we submit ourselves to the liturgy and worship of the Book of Common Prayer. This time-tested volume contains the ancient services and prayers of the historic church as they have been received by English speaking Christians.
During worship at Holy Cross you will witness many things you might not be used to, such as bowing, kneeling, singing, and making the sign of the cross. As a visitor, we do not expect you to know all the gestures and postures. We invite you to participate at your comfort level, or simply to observe for the first few times you come. A visitor’s guide to the liturgy is available as well. This booklet walks through the liturgy, gives directions, and explains the significance of why we do what we do. There is also a video found here that explains our liturgy.
