Worship at St. Andrew's reflects the style of most Episcopal parishes.
Rite I: (Sunday at 8 a.m.) - Rite 1 Holy Eucharist retains the beauty and dignity of the liturgical style and Elizabethan English found in earlier versions of the Book of Common Prayer. This is a spoken service without music that is ideal for those who enjoy quiet worship. Names on the parish prayer list are included in the Prayers of the People and read aloud during the service.
Rite II: (Sunday at 10 a.m., Wednesday at Noon, and on special days, including feast days) - Rite II Holy Eucharist follows the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. This is a very familiar service to long term Episcopalians and it includes organ music, sung hymns, and a choir anthem. At special times such as Christmas or Easter, a choir member or guest may sing solo, or there may be instrumental music (e.g. trumpet, flute, harp). Names on the parish prayer list are included in the Prayers of the People and read aloud during the service.
Prayer List: To place an individual's name on the parish prayer list for Prayers of the People, enter the name in the small notebook on the prayer desk to the far left of the red main entry doors, contact the office at 618-656-1929, or complete the message form on our website. Also, requests for intercessory prayers by the Julian of Norwich Prayer Group can be made by completing a prayer card, available on the display case near the elevator.
Child Care: The church nursery on the lower level is open at 9:45 a.m. on Sundays until the end of the 10 a.m. service. A sitter, at no charge, will care for your children during the service and contact you if your child needs attention. A crib, changing table and appropriate toys are there for your infant, toddler, or young child.
