Due to the pandemic, the Diocese of Arizona has taken precautions. We have made space for social distancing. We welcome you to join us on Sundays as you are able and feel safe. However, the Church is also open through virtual Sunday worship. Join us Sundays at 9 am in-person or on Facebook Live for Holy Eucharist Rite II. The Book of Common Prayer can be found here online. We are celebrating Holy Communion and Communion will be distributed in both kinds with the method of intinction (dipping the bread) being used.
For worship, click here to join us live at 9 am on Sundays or to pray with recorded services.
Incense is used in moderation during worship a few times in the year, listed below. We understand the sensitivity to incense among some and, therefore, space is made for those who wish to be in attendance but who want to be further away from incense. We also thank those with sensitivity for offering those who love incense space during the year to meditate and experience the ancient tradition of offering up incense in prayer. Incense will be used annually during these services: Easter Vigil, Trinity Sunday, the Feast Day of St. Mary the Virgin, All Saints’ Sunday, Christ the King, and Christmas Eve services.
A Note On Holy Communion
In the Holy Eucharist, we receive the Real Presence of the body and blood of Christ. Holy Communion is distributed in both kinds with the wine, the blood of Christ, being received by intinction, that is dipping the bread in the wine. In The Episcopal Church, Communion is open to all baptized Christians who approach with faith and prayer.
