Church of The Incarnation (Dallas, Texas) - Liturgy


The Church of the Incarnation, being a parish of the Episcopal Church, utilizes the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (BCP) as its standard for worship. Each Sunday the Eucharist is celebrated seven times, in addition to six times during the week. Both of the rites provided in the Book of Common Prayer are utilized. The traditional services use Rite I while the contemporary services use Rite II. One exception to the use of the 1979 BCP is for choral evensong. Earlier versions of the BCP included rites for this service, but the closest thing to be found in the most recent edition is a rite for evening prayer. Therefore the rite used had to be taken from a different edition. The rite used is found in the 1662 BCP, which remains the primary edition in the Church of England.

Famous quotes containing the word liturgy:

    My liturgy would employ
    Images of sousing,
    A furious devout drench....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion.... Dogs do not ritually urinate in the hope of persuading heaven to do the same and send down rain. Asses do not bray a liturgy to cloudless skies. Nor do cats attempt, by abstinence from cat’s meat, to wheedle the feline spirits into benevolence. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
