You will find a variety of worship opportunities at St. Christopher. From the quiet, centering Rite I service; to the lively, multi-sensory Contemporary service; to the Rite II choral mass; there is something for everyone at St. Christopher.
All Sunday services are rooted in the liturgy for The Holy Eucharist, and consist of two parts.
Liturgy of the Word - The first part of the service is where we recognize who God is and why we have gathered for worship, collect our thoughts, hear the word of God and the Gospel of Jesus proclaimed, reflect on the Word of God through the sermon, speak as a united voice and confirm what we believe, offer specific intercessory prayers and petitions, reconcile with God, and reconcile with each other. All of this is done to prepare our hearts to receive the blessed sacrament of Holy Communion.
Liturgy of the Sacrament - The second part of the service, also known as Holy Communion, is where we offer the gifts of bread, wine, and alms to God, remember Christ's sacrifice of himself on the cross for the sins of the whole world, ask the Holy Spirit to make Christ present in the bread and wine, and receive the spiritual food that nourishes our souls and sustains us daily.
