WORSHIP WITH US ON SUNDAYS

Welcome to Calvary Episcopal Church!

 

We’re glad you came to visit us online!

Our church building has been closed until at least September 1 as an act of compassion, protecting the most vulnerable among us during this time of pandemic.

Our clergy and lay leadership remain hard at work developing a plan for our eventual reopening for in-person worship.

In the meantime, we offer Sunday worship on our YouTube channel. These are ante-Communion services, that is, everything that comes before the Communion at our regular Sunday service of Holy Eucharist.

You can follow along in the Book of Common Prayer or download a full-service bulletin, linked below.

The 10th Sunday after Pentecost, Rite I

The 10th Sunday after Pentecost, Rite II 

 

As always, Rite I has no music. Rite II has hymns, an anthem, and a postlude.

 

The services are be pre-recorded and made available on our YouTube channel on Sunday morning so you can watch in your PJ’s, pause when the children or pets need something, and sing along to your heart’s delight with the hymns! 😊

 

Whoever you are,
wherever you are
on your spiritual journey,
we welcome you to pray with us
at Calvary Episcopal Church.

THE DIOCESE OF MISSOURI:

You are invited to sign Bishop Deon Johnson’s Anti-Racism Covenant.

A covenant is more than an agreement. A covenant is a relationship of commitment between God and God’s people.

In response to the death of George Floyd and others in police custody, the Rt. Rev. Deon Johnson wrote an anti-racism covenant. The document includes our laments (the things we confess to doing wrong) and our covenant (the promises we make to do better).

Several other bishops in the Episcopal Church and ELCA are supporting our bishop in this action. We invite everyone in our diocese to read the covenant and sign on if you feel called to do so.

As Bishop Deon said, this is an opportunity to move beyond a “statement” and engage in meaningful action to end the sin of racism.
