Sunday Weekly Worship Times

St Barnabas Church Worship TimesSundays

8 am     Low Mass

Low Mass is our standard weekday service and 8:00 Sunday service, in the Lady Chapel.  It is a simple Eucharist, without hymns.  Low Mass contains all the essential elements of the Eucharist, and many find its simplicity appealing.

10:30     Choral Mass with Sunday School & Nursery

High Mass: Our usual 10:30 Sunday service.  Celebrated with a choral Mass setting, hymns, incense, and full vestments; it includes readings from Holy Scripture, a homily (sermon), and Holy Eucharist.

Solemn High Mass:  This is the church’s ‘standard’ full ceremonial, including a procession.  At St. Barnabas, we reserve Solemn High Mass for principal Holy Days

Sunday Monthly Worship Times

4 pm      Sunday Sanctuary Family Service (1st Sundays only)

A non-traditional way to engage in the Spirit of God: through singing, through hands-on activities, and Godly-Play style telling of the stories of the Bible.  Sunday Sanctuary is an informal way of engaging in ‘small experiments in God-with-us’, and is especially, but not exclusively, attractive to families with children.

8 pm     Candlelight Compline (3rd Sundays, except July & August)

Compline means “complete,” and this is the traditional monastic service that ‘completes’ the day’s cycle of prayer.  Compline offers a time of meditative quiet and monastic chant.
