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.
We are currently worshipping in our Great Hall on Sunday mornings while our church is under construction as part of our capital campaign.
SUNDAYS AT CALVARY
Community Breakfast Blessing/Basement Church
Year-round, Calvary volunteers prepare and serve a hot breakfast to approximately 200 neighbors experiencing homelessness in our community. A member of our clergy team leads everyone in prayer before breakfast. Volunteers are always welcome.
8:00 a.m.Holy Eucharist, Rite I
Holy Eucharist, Rite I, is offered at Calvary each Sunday at 8 in the Great Hall. Many in the congregation enjoy food and fellowship at the Parish Breakfast that follows in the Mural Room at 8:45 a.m. The breakfast includes eggs, grits, bacon, sausage, biscuits, coffee, and orange juice. All are welcome. $5
9:15 a.m. Formation for all ages
Calvary seeks to nurture the faith and spiritual growth of our community through inspirational and challenging formation offerings for adults, offering classes for adults on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and throughout the week. Classes and small groups 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.
10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite II with Children’s Chapel
6:00 p.m. Contemplative Eucharist
Each Sunday evening at 6 p.m., all are invited to participate in a quieter, centering time of worship in the Orgill Room. This gathering offers a guided conversation in place of a sermon, new words for old prayers, and opportunities for silence and reflection. (Childcare for children 5 and under is available.)
5:00 p.m. Evensong
Every first Sunday of the month, Sept.-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. “Choral Evensong is a 45-min long peace-inducing church service in which the ‘song’ of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the ‘even’ point between the active day and restful night, allowing listeners time for restful contemplation–church members, agnostics and atheists alike.” (from choralevensong.org). This service also is live-streamed on Calvary’s FaceBook and YouTube pages.
WEDNESDAYS AT CALVARY
12:00 p.m. Noonday Prayers
Holy Eucharist with prayers for healing is offered at noon on Wednesdays and features a reflection by one of our priests. Afterward, join clergy and staff for a brown-bag lunch in the Mural Room, where you will find conversations and connections.
