The churches of the Anglican Communion inherited the Christian year from the pre-Reformation Church of England, and it has been an integral part of the worship of the Book of Common Prayer since 1549. In the renewed understanding of the Christian year, the paschal mystery of dying and rising with Christ is celebrated not only weekly on the Lord’s Day, the day of resurrection, but in the framework of the whole year, with Easter as its theological and structural center.
The Christian year entails a sequence of seven seasons built around holy days that correspond to the major events in the life of Jesus. First, a cycle of preparation and celebration developed in the early church around remembering the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. These seasons include Lent, Holy Week, and Easter. Later, a second cycle arose to commemorate his birth. These seasons include Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. The six month period between them is called Ordinary Time or Pentecost. Different colors and themes mark each season. Overall, they are designed to take each Christian on a pilgrimage through salvation history in order to grow as followers of Jesus and in order to worship Almighty God.
Within each liturgical season specific days make manifest the mystery of God’s active presence with and for the world, with and for us, as each fast and feast invites us into this mystery in a different way.” Dorothy Bass

Singers and Instrumentalists. The ministry is comprised of a very talented group of auditioned singers and instrumentalists, both amateur and professional. These dedicated musicians provide leadership in weekly worship and seasonal services throughout the year. They are scheduled based on the musical needs of any given service. The ministry’s musical repertoire spans a wide range of genres, from traditional sacred choral music and great hymns of the church, to contemporary songs of praise.
For more information or to schedule an audition, please contact our Director of Music & Worship.
