A Practical Guide to the Book of Common Prayer

| Sunday. June 2, 9am | Hutton Hall + ZOOM

It is often said, that when people ask “What do Episcopalians believe?” we invite them to pray with us.  By popular demand, this summer we will take a deep dive into the Book of Common Prayer.  We will discuss how the Book of Common Prayer outlines a practical spirituality and prayer life, the spiritual disposition the prayer book seeks to form within us, and how to get the most out of a treasury of spiritual writings and experience at least 2,500 years in the making.

The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) in the Episcopal Church is a comprehensive guide to worship and devotion. First published in 1549, it includes prayers, liturgies, and sacraments for various occasions. It structures daily, weekly, and seasonal worship, providing services like the Holy Eucharist, Morning and Evening Prayer, and rites for baptisms, weddings, and funerals. The BCP also offers prayers for personal use, emphasizing a worship rhythm that shapes the community’s spiritual life and individuals.
