Join us for Morning Prayer!
Every Monday through Friday St. Elizabeth’s offers a brief service of spoken Morning Prayer over Zoom from 8:30 a.m. until about 8:50 a.m, it is also in person on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the Chapel. The service follows the Rite I order in The Book of Common Prayer with a psalm appointed for the day, readings from the Old Testament, and the Gospels following the two-year cycle of Daily Office lectionary readings. The service includes special collects for that day, focusing on themes of peace, families, children, and education. All are welcome to join in when they can. Please contact the parish office for the Zoom link.
The Collect for today - December 4, 2022 - The Second Sunday of Advent
Merciful God, who didst send thy messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Services we offer
Baptisms normally occur within the context of a Sunday Eucharist. Prior to a baptism the candidate (if an adult) or the parents and godparents (if the candidate is a child) will meet with a member of the clergy on a day other than the day of the service to discuss the service and the implications, large and small, of becoming a Christian through Baptism.
Weddings, like all of the services of the Church, have God as their focal point. In weddings we begin by stating the Christian understanding of marriage, we read passages from the Bible which provide the foundation for that understanding, we witness the exchange of vows of the couple, and we ask God to bless and strengthen the couple in their life together. Christian marriage presupposes that the couple are currently active Church members.
Funerals have at their center our belief in the resurrection and our hope for the life to come. The source of comfort for Christians is not that God rewards good lives, but that God raises all of us to new life beyond death. As an Episcopal Church, our services follow the liturgy for The Burial of the Dead in The Book of Common Prayer and our readings, as in all services, are from the Bible.
