Come to worship at St. Hilary’s. It is the best way to understand what shapes our life of faith, and how your own spiritual needs might be fulfilled.
Our prayer reflects and informs what we believe. As a community of Christian faith we gather as baptized people around the Eucharist on Sunday mornings. Eucharist means “thanksgiving.” It is in the spirit of thanksgiving that we gather from the various preoccupations of our lives to be reminded of God’s presence, and to learn more about what Jesus Christ’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension means for the world.
Come on Sundays
- This is a quiet, meditative, and reflective service of worship with readings, a sermon, and the Eucharist.
- This is a service of worship with music.
- There usually are activities for children and youth at 10:30 during the school year. The children and young people enter worship as we exchange the Peace of Christ to join in the celebration of The Eucharist.
- If you feel you would like to contribute a musical talent to our worship, speak to our Music Director. Together we can explore how you could best integrate musical expression into our worship.

Please speak to the clergy on Sunday to indicate your intentions — note, that we do require a minimum of 60 days’ notice before the date of your wedding.

We have several resources to recommend that couples of all ages have found helpful. The idea is to not only prepare you for this significant celebration at St Hilary’s, but to provide you with a foundation to support and uphold a healthy married life together after the celebration is over.
