Sunday: Sung Mass  at 10:30 AM is a joyful community celebration to make you feel uplifted when you leave, except in Advent and Lent when it is more subdued, introspective and reflective to prepare for Christmas and Easter respectively. This Mass is our main event of the week and lasts about an hour, sometimes more on important days. Most of this service is sung in a manner emphasizing musical participation by the entire assembly led by a professional accompanist. Other musicians, be they singers or instrumentalists, are invited to assist. We offer incense on feast days and other times when appropriate. This Mass features a homily. Any visiting clergy ordained in the Apostolic Succession are invited to concelebrate vested in alb and stole matching the color of the day. Visiting acolytes will be accommodated if at all possible. And to those of you who compose music for the liturgy: please submit your offerings to the pastor for scheduling.
 
Saturday Vigil Mass: We currently DO NOT celebrate a Saturday Evening Vigil Mass, but we are open to doing so if enough people are interested and are willing to do the work to promote it and give financial contributions to support it. 
 
Weekday Mass: We celebrate a Low Mass (spoken, without music) at 12:15 PM on Wednesdays, and on important feast days.
 
House Mass: If you would like Mass celebrated in your home, please contact the Pastor to make arrangements.
 
Preaching:  We have a preaching Rota. Rev. David Justin Lynch, Rev. Dcn, Sharon Kay Talley, Rev. Richard Matgen, preach in rotation. At least once a month, we host a guest preacher from outside the parish. Our guest preachers have included Fr. Manny Edgar-Beltran, Mo. Donna Owen, Fr. Richard Sinacola, Rt. Rev. Paul Breton, and Rt. Rev. Nina Paul.  Anyone wanting to preach is encouraged to contact the Pastor. We welcome lay preachers as well as clergy.
 
Lectionary: We use the Roman Catholic Lectionary, with occasional variations. Lectors have the option of vesting and being in the Altar Party, or not vesting and sitting in the congregation. Lectors who vest have the option of reciting or chanting their assigned reading. The Second Reading is ordinarily in Spanish.
 
Eucharistic Liturgy: We use the current Roman Catholic Order of Mass with the following variations: 1. We use the wording from the Roman Missal Second edition for the Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei. 2. We administer communion first to the congregation, then acolytes, then assisting clergy, and last, the Presider.
 
We have the following schedule of Eucharistic Prayers: In Advent, we sing Prayer C from the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. For Christmas, the two Sundays following, and Epiphany, we sing Prayer II from the Third Edition Roman Missal. During Winter Ordinary Time, we sing an English translation of German Old Catholic Prayer V. During Lent, we sing Reconciliation Prayer II from the Second Edition Roman Missal. During from Easter Vigil through Pentecost, we sing Roman Catholic Prayer II from the Third Edition Roman Missal. From Trinity Sunday throughout summer and fall Ordinary Time, we sing a hybrid Eucharistic Prayer that conflates Prayer B from the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer with Roman Catholic Prayer II.
 
Music: In addition to compositions by the pastor, David Justin Lynch, most of our music comes from either OCP Breaking Bread or Episcopal Hymnal 1982, with occasional music from Lift Every Voice And Sing 2, the Gather Comprehensive Hymnal, and other sources. We aim for a wide variety of periods and styles and are constantly adding to our repertoire. The Gloria is not sung during Lent or Advent. The Agnus Dei is ordinarily sung in Spanish, "Cordero de Dios", and occasionally in English, "Lamb of God", using the Saint Cecilia Mass setting on all Sundays except Lent and Advent, when we use that from Flor y Canto Second Edition.  The Agnus Dei and Sanctus, or "Holy Holy Holy" is to the Saint Cecilia Mass setting on all Sundays except Lent and Advent, when settings from the Hymnal 1982 are used.
 
Creed: We sing the Nicene Creed on all Sundays when the color of the day is not green. In Advent and Lent, we sing the Creed to the tone in Missa Penitentialis. On All Saints Sunday, during Christmastide, and from Easter Sunday through Corpus Christi, we sing the Creed from the Saint Cecilia Mass composed by the pastor. On all green Sundays, the Creed is recited.
 
Vestments: Except for Lectors who have the option of vesting or not, all liturgical personnel are vested in albs. The Presider always wears over the alb a stole and chasuble for Mass. The Deacon of the Mass on Sunday wears stole and dalmatic, and for weekday low Masses, a stole only over the alb. Musicians wear a black academic gown. The "street clothes ministry movement" is not welcome here as it detracts from the solemnity and dignity to which the liturgy is entitled in a house of worship.
