Due to the pandemic, we currently offer in-person contemplative worship at 5.30 pm on Saturdays for fully-masked participants
If you are looking for a positive, wholesome community that’s dipping into a deep and ancient well with fresh, progressive minds and open and loving hearts, do join us.
Contemplative Mass takes place in a very quiet space, one defined by more senses then most church services. It is dark, with the front of the church lit by dozens of votive candles. Prayers are chanted with the support of musicians versed in early music and who are very good at including all of us in the chants, many of them from the Taize Community in France. It is quiet, peaceful, and just the kind of space that can help put you in a posture of receptivity to God, just the kind of place where you can partake in the Sacrament of the Present Moment.
Some of us miss the smells and bells of an Anglo-Catholic upbringing. Some of us long for a more meditative approach to Christian worship. Some of us seek a base community for our contemplative practices. Some of us simply appreciate being with others in a beautiful, purposeful space.
The incense is lovely.
The community is welcoming.
The preaching is progressive.
And the well is very, very deep.
We look forward to seeing you when we resume Contemplative Mass on Saturdays at 5:30 pm next year.
