The liturgical year begins with Advent 2013. Our lectionary is therefore Year 2 for the Daily Office (2 being associated with the following odd year), and our Sunday Lectionary is Year A.

“The fruit of silence is PRAYER. The fruit of prayer is FAITH. The fruit of faith is LOVE. The fruit of love is SERVICE. The fruit of service is PEACE. God bless you.” – Mother Teresa’s business card.

Church Etiquette

Before you enter, please turn off your cell phone. The church bell will be rung 10 minutes before service. This is a call to prayer. Silence should be kept. If you arrive late, the usher will assist you to finding a seat. The organ prelude and postlude are times for reflective prayer; please be attentive to the parishioners around you.

When the procession begins as the crucifix is carried, it is our tradition to acknowledge and reverence the cross by bowing your head while it passes by the pews. Remember it is our tradition, if you are able, that we kneel or stand to pray, sit to hear the scripture, and we stand for the reading of the Gospel.

If you are a Lector (reader), please come forward and reverence the altar before going to the lectern to read. Note that all scriptures to be read are at the lectern. Do not carry the insert up and use that. Please use the Lectionary that is marked for you.

Passing the Peace is symbolic of asking forgiveness of one another and to greet each other in the Name of the Lord and His Peace. It is not a time for extraneous conversation.  Children from the Sunday School will be entering at the time of the Peace. Quietly make your presence known to your child so they may find you easily.

Following the Peace, the announcements will be only to welcome newcomers and to update anyone in the parish regarding pastoral care. Please read the bulletin after the Liturgy to get information about upcoming events.

After the Sanctus, either stand or kneel throughout the prayers of consecration. This is a very sacred and meditative time. Please refrain from talking. At the invitation to come to the altar (“The Gifts of God, for the people of God”…) there is no AMEN at the end of this.

During communion, you may kneel or stand at the altar rail. If you do not wish to receive communion, but wish a blessing, the signal is to cross your hands over your chest. While others receive communion, continue to be sensitive to those around you who may be in prayer. During the post communion prayer you may kneel or stand.
