At St. Paul’s, like all Episcopal churches, our worship is centered on the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our principle order of worship, The Holy Eucharist, is found in the Book of Common Prayer and is deeply rooted in the traditional worship of the ancient Church. Our prayer and praise is centered on what our relationship with Jesus Christ should be like and in how our Lord invites us to acknowledge our sins and celebrate our gifts.

 

As a Collegiate Church, St. Paul’s is a church where the Daily Office of worship is maintained and where a community of clergy shares in the preaching roles of the church. We also maintain a very active and devoted lay leadership community, including licensed lay Eucharistic ministers, that visit the sick, homebound, and those in the congregation who cannot attend worship services.

 

Our worship is in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of High Church services with a sung Rite I or II Mass, including a procession, choir, incense and the ringing of bells on Sunday morning at 10 am. There are also opportunities for different worship experiences and spoken Masses at an early Sunday English language service, midday Sunday Spanish language service, and Eucharistic Masses in English each weekday, including healing services on Tuesday evening and Thursday morning. We also hold daily in-person and virtual morning and evening prayer.”

To be said on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation when prevented by good cause from celebrating the Holy Sacrifice.

     

+ In the Name of the Father…

Our Father… I believe…

 

Collect

Let the power of the Holy Spirit come on me, O Lord:  that I may be cleansed of all sin and defended from all adversity:  through the mercy of Jesus Christ your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

 

The Epistle Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with them and they with me.

 

The Gospel John 15:5

I am the vine, you are the branches.

 They that abide in me and I in them, bears much fruit:  for apart from me you can do nothing.

 

Act of Contrition

O God, I mourn from my inmost heart that I have sinned against you. 

Forgive me for Jesus sake, and I will resolve by your grace to sin no more.

 

At this time meditate on the Holy Sacrifice offered on the Altars of the Church; or on the communion of our Lord, 

really present and given to us sinners; or on his promise

 

“If any love me, they will keep my words, and my Father will love them and we will come to them and make our home with them.”  

 

Then say,

Lord, I am not worthy to receive you; but only say the word and I shall be healed.

 

Act of Reception

In Union, dear Lord, with the faithful at every altar of your Church where your blessed Body and Blood is being offered to the Father, I (We) desire to offer you praise and thanksgiving. I (We) believe that you are truly present in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar. And since I am (We are) unable to receive you sacramentally.  I (We) beseech you to come spiritually into my (our) heart. I (We) unite myself (ourselves)to you and embrace you with all the affections of my (our) soul. Let me (us) never be separated from you. Let me (us) live and die in your love Amen 

A Prayer for Grace

Come Lord Jesus, dwell in your servant(s) in the fulness of your strength, in the perfection of your ways, and in the holiness of your spirit, rule over every hostile power in the might of your spirit, and to the glory of your Father. Amen.

 

An Act of Praise

May the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve our bodies and souls unto everlasting life. Amen

In returning to in-person worship, the health and safety of all participants is our first priority. The following guidelines detail what to expect.  Following the lead of the City of Savannah and the Chatham County Public Schools, a Mask is optional indoors at the present time. We will be giving communion in both kinds. If you do not want to receive from the Chalice, please bypass the Chalice bearers. If you would like to receive by intinction hold the host up from your palm and let the Chalice bearer take it and intinct the host. This insures that fingers are not dipped in the consecrated wine.  If you are ready to take this step, we look forward to seeing you in the pews. While our goal will be to make these services as welcoming and safe as possible, no one is required to attend in-person worship – Our Public Worship is available virtually by live-stream. If you are unable to participate at the appointed service times, please know all past services are available for viewing on our Facebook page.
