The Hands of Christ in the Heart of Lacey

Saint Benedict Episcopal Church in Lacey,WA 98509

Who We Are

The street address of the Christian religion is Sunday morning worship, lived 
out at St Benedict with awe and obligation in a construct called liturgy. Liturgy is
 a Greek word that means “the work of the people,” which can provoke a chorus
 of “Ugh, all I need is more work.” And if that is how you feel, then we know exactly where you’re coming from.

Our prayer for Sunday morning is that the familiar takes over. That the rhythms and routines of the service entertain body and mind so as to let the soul unfurl, letting the debris of the week be blown away by the Holy Spirit. Our hope is that the words of the sermon provoke thoughts of life and God, and lead to musings that gloriously unite our weekly routines with divine inspiration.

We follow the liturgical calendar, which is the ancient way of matching worship with the life of Christ. Through these recurring patterns we are formed and re-formed by the stories of Christ’s life, so that our life, by imitation and association, is immersed in the presence of God in our midst.

Our services are focused through scripture reading, song, prayers, preaching, and the liturgy of the table, known also as Holy Eucharist. Here we participate in a holy meal set and given to fortify our soul.

Music is central to our liturgy. Our well-trained choir sings a variety of music from within the Anglican tradition. Their common voice sets a tone for the timeless nature of worship at St Benedict, capturing the beauty, unity, and mystery of worship from across time into a particular moment in time and, in this way, refreshing the soul.

The only requirement for worship at St Benedict is presence. Come join us.
