The Eucharistic Liturgies

Here you will find two Eucharistic liturgies. Each liturgy accords with the BCP's Order for Eucharist. Under each category you will find three documents : the  entire liturgy, the text of the Eucharistic prayer alone, and a description of how we set up and led the liturgy in their original contexts. On each page, you will be able to download these texts as pdfs and folding handouts. 


St. Peter's Family Service (for children 1-8 and their families)

This liturgy was written with the Rev. Sandra Stayner for the monthly Family Service at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, in Cheshire, CT. It was written for a group including infants to young children and their older family members or caregivers, and can be led by just two ministers (including a priest and a musician). 


Redeemer Little Chapel Liturgy (for children 3-10 and teen assistants)

This liturgy was written for the Sunday School’s Little Chapel service at the Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill, MA. It was written for children ages 3-10, with children 10-18 serving as helpers, and with additional adult children's ministers from the Godly Play classrooms. It can be led by just two ministers (including a priest and musician).


Rubrics & Guidelines from the BCP and EOW for these Services

Included here are simply the pages from The Book of Common Prayer (1979) and Enriching Our Worship (1998) which outline and oversee liturgies such as these.
