St. Patrick’s announces summer schedule

Beginning Sunday, June 1, St. Patrick’s will resume its summer schedule of two Sunday morning services, the first at 8 a.m. and the second at 10 a.m.

The 8 a.m. service will be a service that includes Holy Eucharist, but without music, allowing those who wish to get an early start to the day to do so. The 10 a.m. service will be the traditional service of Holy Eucharist that includes hymns and choral anthems. Both services include a sermon.

“We know that in the summer, there are many who want to keep church short and simple so that they can enjoy the rest of the day outdoors, or with friends. Others prefer the more formal worship service, or perhaps want to enjoy another hour of sleep before preparing for church. Either way, we want to give people the opportunity to worship with our church community,” says Fr. Doug Neel, rector of St. Patrick’s.

“We have a lot of folks who are summer members,” says Fr. Neel. “We always look forward to having them back with us and worshipping with them. We hope that by offering two opportunities to do that will broaden their options and make being a part of our community more accommodating.”
