Worship

As a congregation, we strive to balance our historic traditions with the ongoing needs of the community.  The warmth of our building's brick-and-beam architecture reflects our Episcopal tradition; our dynamic parish family keeps our parish alive in the Holy Spirit.

Weekly Healing Service with Eucharist

Visitors to Rochester are invited and encouraged to attend this service at 5:15 p.m. Monday.  We pray for people facing physical and emotional pain, directing our spiritual energy to God's healing grace for the courage to move forward beyond hopelessness.  Anyone who wishes may be anointed with oil, symbolizing the ongoing touch and renewal in Christ.

Special Seasonal Services

Calvary maintains the tradition of special services that so enrich liturgical life, including the "O" Antiphons during Advent, and Tenebrae and the Great Vigil of Easter during Holy Week.
