The Episcopal Church of the Holy Innocents 

With Lent there comes certain sadness, but that sadness is followed by the Joy and Hope of eternal life, offered to us with the death and resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. This makes for a very emotional church season, and some of the most moving hymns and choral anthems.

Our choir will be singing for each Sunday service during Lent, and also Ash Wednesday; as well as Maundy Thursday and Good Friday during Holy Week. Their offering of beautiful anthems is sure to enhance worship.

Please join us in sadness and in joy, in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Before our service begins, a quiet prelude is played on the organ, allowing all to enter the church and have some time for quiet prayer and/or healing. The choral anthem at the offertory helps us focus on the readings that day, as well as the church season in general, and during communion, the music is often particularly reflective, creating a pensive and prayerful tone. The liturgy centered hymns allow us to make music together in His name. All of this is offered to the Glory of God and can bring us closer to Him. And it is so worth getting there!
