Evening Prayer

Join us for Evening Prayer as a mid-week break from our daily lives.

The Benedictine Rule of Life provides for a balance of work, prayer, and rest in the lives of its adherents. Evening Prayer, Vespers, is the 6th of the seven “hours” of prayer. It usually takes place at the end of the work day, nominally at sunset/6pm.

We continue this practice with the Evening Office, using either the two year Daily Office Lectionary [readings] or those for the appropriate observances from the Episcopal Calendar.

3rd Sunday after the Epiphany

11:45 Adult Formation follows Coffee Hour

Holy Eucharist, Rite II

Jesus returns to Nazareth in today’s Gospel. As the guest from out of town, He is invited to read from the prophet Isaiah, and (presumably) to teach from that reading. He does so, but with an authority that no scribe or rabbi could equal.

Readings for the 3rd Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C
Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10
Psalm 19
1 Corinthians 12:12-31a

St. Clare's Ministries

  • Episcopal Church of St. Peter & St. Mary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

St. Clare's Ministries is a Jubilee Ministry of the Diocese of Colorado that serves the homeless and working poor from the Episcopal Church of St. Peter & St. Mary in Denver's Baker neighborhood.

A hot meal is served at 6pm on Tuesday evenings, serving between 75 and 200 guests each week (holidays included).  An optional Holy Eucharist takes place at 5:15pm, and this growing "emergant church" demonstrates how St. Clare's has evolved from a "soup kitchen" to a caring community. 

St. Clare's clothing closet opens at 6:30 to provide toiletries, new underwear, clean clothing, and other essentials.  During the winter months, we provide hats, gloves, coats, heavy socks, blankets, and a limited number of sleeping bags to meet the needs of our guests.

Teams from St. Elizabeth's help with both the Supper and the Clothing Closet on 5th Tuesdays of the month (four times each year).  You are invited to join us.

The 4th Sunday After the Epiphany

11:45 Adult Formation follows Coffee Hour

Holy Eucharist, Rite II

Jesus returns to Nazareth in last week’s Gospel, and is invited to read (and preach) from the scroll of Isaiah. Today’s reading continues that narrative and describes the outrage that ensues.

Our Epistle reading from 1st Corinthians is the well-known “love” chapter, which is often read at weddings, and (more correctly) serves as the center of many a Rule of Life.

Readings for the 4th Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C
Jeremiah 1:4-10
Psalm 71:1-6
1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Luke 4:21-30

Ash Wednesday

Our Lenten observance begins this evening, with the appointed lessons and homily.

The Celebrant will then invite the People to the observance of a holy Lent, after which the Ashes will be blessed and imposed upon the foreheads of all who wish.

The Litany of Penitence serves as the Prayers of the People, followed by the Absolution and the Peace.

Our first Lenten celebration of the Holy Eucharist concludes the service.

Readings for Ash Wednesday:
Joel 2:1-2, 12-17 or Isaiah 58:1-12
Psalm 103 or 1038-14
2 Corinthians 5:20b--6:10
Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21

Feast of the Epiphany

The 12 Days of Christmas have come to an end as we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany. Though the Magi did not reach the Christ Child for about two years after His birth, we remember their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

During this season, our Gospel readings will provide us with further examples of epiphanies (manifestations from above).

On this first Sunday of Advent, we will light the first (blue) candle on our Advent Wreath.

Isaiah 60:1-6
Psalm 72:1-7,10-14
