Believing that beauty attunes us to God, St. Paul’s seeks to worship God in the beauty of holiness, engaging all the senses—through the poetry of hymns, incense, ritual, movement, and the marvel of the Church itself—awakening us to Christ’s invitation of love.
St. Paul’s maintains a “program year” which starts at the end of September or early October and continues through June. During the program year, there is a Solemn High Mass on Sunday at 11 am, which lasts for about 70 minutes. The Mass entails a sung liturgy, an anthem (short musical composition) sung by the choir, and congregational hymns.
On Wednesdays at 9 am, Low Mass is said at the High Altar or at one of the side Altars as appropriate to the day.
The Daily Office (Morning and Evening Prayer) is said throughout the week in the Lady Chapel (entrance on Carroll Street) and or on Zoom. During the summer, all Offices are on Zoom only. For the Zoom link, subscribe to our Newsletter.
