RECOVERY EUCHARIST- First, Third, and Fifth Sundays of the month
Recovery Eucharist is not a 12-step meeting. Rather it is a worship service that welcomes anyone of any faith tradition to come and see if participating in this kind of gathering will actually enhance their own experience of God. All persons, in any type of recovery and at any phase of their journey, are welcomed to come to this safe space and worship service that nurtures and strengthens their relationships to a Higher Power through fuller participation in the sacraments and fellowship. This service is unique because, instead of a sermon, individuals at their own discretion reflect and share on how the Gospel and the 12 Step Reading intersect with their own lives. For more information, please email Mary Murphy at email@example.com who serves as administrator of the service.
Contemplative Eucharist- SECOND AND FOURTH SUNDAYs OF THE MONTH
Thomas Merton once said, "let there always be quiet, dark churches in which people can take refuge." This is the aim of the Contemplative Eucharist; that is, to provide a sacred space to rest in God. This service, which meets on the second and fourth Sunday of each month from 8.00-9.00AM, provides many different opportunities to experience Divine Love through silence, qi gong, music, guided mediation, preaching, and of course the Eucharist. At the conclusion of the service, there is a "round-table" discussion for those who would like to dialogue with others about the Gospel reading and service. For more information, please email Scott Owings at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Wednesday evening service offers a peaceful space for midweek reflection and spiritual renewal during the school year. This 45 minute service typically includes music, prayer, story, meditation, and the Eucharist. We gather in the A-Frame Chapel for a simple supper served at 5:45PM, followed by the Eucharist service which begins at 6:15PM. Children are welcome and childcare will be provided.
The Corporal Works of Mercy are found in the teachings of Jesus and give us a model for how we should treat everyone with compassion, as if they were Christ in disguise. They are corporal (related to the body) because they respond to the basic needs of humanity. In the Christian tradition, these acts of mercy are ethical practices that all can offer as part of our duty and calling to love our neighbor as ourselves.
