Welcome to Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church

 

 

 

 

 

Our Mission: To love. To pray. To serve.

Our Worship

We invite you to enjoy our sanctuary which is almost ‘monastic’ in its simplicity. Designed to be in harmony with the architectural history of New England, it is a quiet space, free of distractions.

We use the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, the Hymnal 1982 and Wonder, Love & Praise. The liturgies of St. Dunstan’s are, as Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmore instructed for the Prayer Book of 1549, read “plainly upon the book.”

The Holy Communion is offered at 8 and 10 am the first three Sundays of each month. Morning Prayer with Communion is offered at 8 and 10 am on the 4th Sundays of each month. When there is a 5th Sunday of the month, there is Lay led Morning Prayer at 8 and 10 am.

Music is an integral part of our 10 am worship, with the singing of the ordinary and five hymns most Sundays.

There are many opportunities for service in our worship. We have a very active and competent Guild of Sacristans as well as a Guild of Lectors who read the lessons at each service.

We keep a quiet Advent and our Christmas services are at 5:30 pm on Christmas Eve and 10:00 am on Christmas Day. Lent begins with a 6:00 pm Ash Wednesday service. Holy Week is kept as it is set out in the Prayer Book, with Maundy Thursday and Good Friday Liturgies at 6:00 pm.

A ‘broad church’ parish, we try to make worship room for all while maintaining our Episcopal values of scripture, tradition and reason.
