Schedule & Style of Services

8:00 am Sunday: Holy Eucharist, Rite I

This is a spoken service (without music) using the more formal language of Rite I in the Book of Common Prayer.

9:00 am Sunday: The Rite Place Liturgy (in the Chapel upstairs)

A joyful, contemporary setting of the Holy Eucharist especially for the youngest among us and those who may be new to the Episcopal Church. People of all ages have found this service meaningful and accessible.

10:30 a.m. Sunday, Holy Eucharist, Rite II

This service includes music provided by our Cambridge adult choir, our Canterbury children’s choir, our handbell choir, or some combination of the three. Rite II uses contemporary English to express our prayers and praise to God.

Noon, Wednesday, Holy Eucharist and Healing

This service is Rite II and includes anointing with oil and healing prayers for those who desire them. The service tends to be small, and those who attend it find it friendly and meaningful. It includes a short Scripture reflection and provides a great mid-week spiritual boost.

All services follow the Revised Common Lectionary, a three-year cycle of readings used by many denominations.

Holy Days

There are also a number of special services throughout the year, including on Christmas Eve and Ash Wednesday, and throughout Holy Week. Check the site for information about service times.

Stained Glass and Needlepoint

Scripture enjoins us to “worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” You may be interested to know that Calvary has recently undertaken a project to clean and restore our stained glass windows. In addition, over the course of several decades, Calvary parishioners have hand needle-pointed some of our altar frontals, and many of the kneelers in our pews! The windows and kneelers were featured during a walking tour of downtown churches in 2013.  They help make Calvary a place of beauty and reverence.
