St. Monica and St. James maintains a strong liturgical heritage based on more than 130 years of parish history. Today, Sung Mass on Sunday morning and celebration of the Eucharist in daily services continue to be the spiritual food of the congregation. These shared liturgical experiences bind us to God and to one another. Sunday worship invokes all the senses through words that have come down through the ages, incense, and glorious music.
Our community uses the rich liturgical tradition found in the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer (BCP). The Mass on weekdays, and at 8 am on Sunday, uses Rite I from the BCP. The Sung Mass at 10 am on Sunday Uses Rite II from the BPC.
