The Feasting Continues Online!
Our Sunday service is live and interactive. The 45-minute long service begins at 10:00 AM. We sing together, offer our own prays, hear the scriptures, and share in making the sermon. Following the liturgy, you're welcome to continue the conversation at coffee hour. The service is live-streamed via Zoom teleconferencing. Just email the parish administrator, and we'll share the login information (email during office hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays).
Every Sunday at 11:00 AM, children and families gather to hear a sacred story in our zoom Godly Play classroom. The Godly Play approach helps children and parents to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language, and to enhance their spiritual experiences through wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, Godly Play is a mixed-age classroom serving children ages 4-12— email Peter for login information.
The Icon Group
Sharing the joy of icons with all people is the first agreement of the iconographer. You are welcome to join our icon group online via Zoom teleconferencing every Sunday at 2:00 PM. For years, St. Gregory's icon group has met to "write" (paint) icons in the fourteenth-century Russian style. We're still making icons and learning from each other in our zoom studio. Contact Betsy for login information.
The Story of a Saint
Every Sunday at 4:00 PM, we gather to hear the story of a saint. While we are out of our church building because of physical distancing protocols, you can experience the heavenly Dancing Saints icon online. Each session begins with a reading about one of the saints depicted, allows time for sharing wonderings and experiences, and concludes with a meditative reflection before closing with prayers. Email the parish administrator for login information or stream past recordings from our archives here.
Every Sunday until Christmas, we will be streaming our 8:00 PM Compline service. Compline is a short, peaceful end-of-day office with its roots in the night prayers of monastic traditions. To participate, see the entry in our weekly newsletter or contact our Parish Administrator. The service leaflet can be found here.
Support Our Work
We invite visitors to the church and website to join St. Gregory’s members and friends in giving generously to support all the work of the church. Your help today makes it possible to continue the work that God gives us to do. This is particularly important right now as we live with the economic impact of COVID-19. As Gregory of Nyssa teaches, all that we give is in gratitude for God’s gifts to us.
Daily Morning Prayer
We gather Monday – Friday at 7:30 AM for Morning Prayer. This short service is a time to listen to scripture, chant the Psalms, share our prayers, and experience silence in community. Start your day with 30-minutes of prayer. Contact the parish administrator for login information.
Everyone is welcome to join in contemplative prayer every Thursday at Noon. We begin with an informal discussion, then share in twenty minutes of silent meditation. You can learn more about contemplative prayer from the Center for Action and Contemplation. Email Peter for login information.
Friday Noonday Prayers
Every Friday, we gather for 15-minutes of prayer at mid-day. We find that taking a break in the middle of the day for silence and prayer is an excellent way to reconnect with the Spirit that dwells within each of us. Email Paul for login information.
Recordings of Our Services
In addition to joining us live for Sunday worship, you can watch our videos at anytime. And if you'd like to listen to sermons, you can find a full listing here.
