Worship @ CTS
Weekly worship services at CTS, inclusive of Word and Table (Holy Communion) * take place every Wednesday during the academic year. It is a full and joyful gathering of the CTS community. Services begin at 11:30 am (unless otherwise indicated) and are open to the public. Visitors are always welcome. Please join us!
The CTS community also gathers for worship on a variety of special occasions prompted by conferences, convocations, and continuing education events. In October, near the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, we have a service that includes the Blessing of the Animals, and in December, we have a special service of Advent Lessons and Carols.
God is praised continually at CTS, both in private prayer and in many forms of community worship. The life of the Spirit is shared by all who are part of the CTS experience—whether students, faculty, staff or off-campus visitors—and there are opportunities for everyone who wants to participate as preachers, musicians and liturgists.
CTS has a community of singers and other musicians who share in worship leadership and occasional concert programs. Worship leaders, musicians and the community choir gather weekly at 10:30 am on Wednesdays to prepare for worship.
For more information about chapel services and how to get involved, please contact Dean Leah Gunning Francis, Interim Chapel Director.
*Note: unfermented wine (grape juice) is used during communion.
