Watch Calvary’s worship service from Sunday, May 3, 2020
Most parishioners connect to Calvary through liturgy and worship. Sunday and Holy Day liturgies at Calvary are joyful celebrations of our Episcopal tradition, enriched by notable musical offerings featuring our magnificent Aeolian-Skinner organ.

The 10 a.m. Eucharist with Children’s Chapel attracts a widely varied congregation of all ages including a strong contingent of young families.

Formation classes for all ages are offered following this service.

- Formation classes for adults, youth, and children
Faith formation classes are offered for adults, children, and youth on Sunday mornings, following the 10 a.m. worship service. The Adult Christian Formation Committee (ACF), a lay-led group that seeks to nurture the faith and spiritual growth of the Calvary community through inspirational and challenging formation offerings for adults, plans classes for adults for both Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings at Calvary. Classes are led by clergy, lay volunteers, and guest speakers from local colleges, seminaries, churches, synagogues, and non-profit organizations. Sunday morning classes for children use Godly Play as its foundation, while youth focus on learning to interact as a community of faith and learning how faith shapes their daily lives.
- 5:00 p.m.
Every first Sunday of the month, September through May
Join us for a traditional Anglican choral liturgy in Calvary’s beautiful nave at twilight. Following the Book of Common Prayer service outline, Evensong gives weekend travelers an opportunity to worship or having been to a morning service, it offers a time of prayer and quiet reflection as evening falls.
