Worship is the beating heart of ECP.

Weekly Services

Everything we do at ECP arises out of our encounter with a living, loving God. In prayer and worship, song and sacrament, we attune ourselves to the reality of God's gracious presence always and everywhere with us.

Whether you’re a lifelong Anglican/Episcopalian or first-time inquirer, you are warmly welcome to join any of our services throughout the week—from our main services on Sunday evenings in the Princeton University Chapel to weekly dinner, fellowship, and Bible study at Procter House.

Our weekly schedule during term is as follows:

Sundays

  • 8pmMass (Rite II), Princeton University Chapel
    • Our main service of worship during term, a Eucharist service in the chancel of Princeton University Chapel with the Lux Choir and organ accompaniment on most Sundays (and a simple, said service in the Marquand Transept on low Sundays).


Mondays

                    When we come to worship God together, when we come as the body of Christ celebrating the sacrament of the Eucharist, we come to that great space which Jesus has cleared. Here we stand – not busy, not anxious, not obsessed with what we’re producing and how we’re succeeding, but here we stand – still, listening, receiving. And we put out our hands, not to lay hold of something and manipulate it and squeeze it into our shapes. We put out our hands empty, to receive the gift of life and love, the body and blood of the Lord in the sacrament.”
                    — The Rt Rev'd Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury
