All are welcome.
One ancient and modern way to pray is through the Daily Office: The Book of Common Prayer services of Morning Prayer, Noonday Prayer, and Evening Prayer. Uniquely, the structure of Daily Office prayer gathers up personal and corporate concerns to be prayed together. From monasteries to churches like St. Peter’s to private homes, people have been praying the Daily Office for thousands of years, all because it brings us closer to God and deepens Christian community. In this new year, consider adding to your prayer life at St. Peter’s: Morning Prayer in the Chapel of The Saints, Monday – Friday, 8:00-8:30 a.m. and/or sung Evening Prayer (Choral Evensong led by clergy and choir) in the Nave, Second and Fourth Sundays through April 24, 5:00-5:45 p.m. On Wednesdays, Morning Prayer is followed immediately by a new clergy-facilitated offering called “Holy Conversation” to reflect on the morning’s scripture lessons. Holy Conversation ends at 9:00 a.m. and coffee is available.
