liturgy & worship

3/14/2020 - Update: Out of love for our neighbor and to protect those most vulnerable, we will be inviting our community & friends to participate online in our liturgies. Beginning Sunday, March 15 - all liturgies will be livestreamed on Sundays at 5pm Pacific. (You do not need a facebook account to view them). As part of this, we’ll also be sharing worship aids, readings, and homilies. More information can be found on our online liturgy page

Liturgy and worship is at the center of our community life. We meet on Sunday nights at 5pm for mass - which lasts about an hour and has music, readings, a homily, and Eucharist. On Thursdays at 12:15pm, we offer a more intimate Eucharist without music where all attendees share in the parts of the mass. We tend to have special liturgies for major events - Martin Luther King Sunday, PRIDE weekend, the Feast of Mary Magdalene, as well as holidays like Christmas and Easter. 

All are truly welcome at our liturgies.

or browse our collection of past homilies and worship aids to get a feel for our worship services. 

Our scripture readings come from the Comprehensive Catholic Lectionary,

a project undertaken by Jane Via & Nancy Corran. 

Liturgical ministries

There are several ways to get involved in our liturgy: 

  • Join the choir - Our choir meets at 4pm every Sunday and all are welcome to participate. No prior singing experience required! 
  • Consider joining one of the teams - ushers, greeters, eucharistic ministers, lectors! Read more here
  • Our liturgy committee is responsible for the planning of our liturgies. They meet once a month to discuss upcoming liturgies. Meetings are open to all - come see what goes into making our liturgy happen.
