We worship at two Sunday Masses. Our 8:00 a.m. service is a said Mass; the 10:00 a.m. is a sung Mass with hymns. Sunday School and childcare are provided during the 10:00 Mass. Our Liturgy is Rite I (traditional language and forms) from the Book of Common Prayer

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we worship at one Mass on Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

Our Rector, Father Phillip Craig, and his lovely family bring a modern, refreshing influence to our traditional heritage, allowing both young and old to enjoy the family feel of our small community and our worship services.


Our beautiful chapel regularly hosts special events ranging from lectures to classical recitals. We also host musical performers for potluck dinners through our Songwriter’s Series. Please see our Calendar Page for more information.
