Below are descriptions of the services at St. Columba’s, and the essential
roles parishioners can play, as chalice bearers, crucifers, readers,
acolytes, ushers, and members of the Altar Guild. Please consider taking an
active part in our worship.
We use the Book of Common Prayer: the red book on the back of each chair.
The blue Hymnal 1982 is used at the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service. At all
services, ushers hand out bulletins to guide people through the service.
Hymn numbers are also posted above the organ.

Wednesday Evening Prayer with Prayers for Healing
The Wednesday evening 5:30 service includes the Litany for Healing.
Printed sheets are available in the back of the church. After the prayers
and the confession, members of the congregation are invited to come forward
to receive a special prayer for healing and to be anointed with oil.
Serving as candle-bearers, acolytes take an active role assisting the deacon in preparing for the Eucharist, learning about the Church’s practices as they serve. Young people are especially encouraged to participate in this way. Anyone interested should contact Nick Coogan at
