To Attend

Doors will open at 5:15pm at our Chapel at 980 Memorial Dr. Arrive before the service starts. We will be in contact with you with further arrival details.

Enter through the front door and spread out in the choir. Since this service will be livestreamed, feel free to sit in the St. John's Chapel, Ante-Chapel, or the Lady Chapel if you wish your image to be obscured by distance on the livestream feed. A Brother will greet you as you enter.

Please read the Guidelines for Worship below, check the box at the bottom of the page, and submit your form to attend. If you have any questions, please contact tblackham@ssje.org 

Guidelines for Student Tuesdays at the Monastery

We are glad to welcome you to the Monastery, our home.  As this is not strictly a public place, guidelines have been adjusted to ensure reasonable safety for invited, vaccinated guests.  We want to ensure that the Monastery, and especially these occasions of in person worship, are safe, and so we ask you to follow these guidelines:

  1. The chapel doors will open for Eucharist at 5:15pm. As you enter, please check in. People who have not pre-registered will only be accommodated if there is space available.
  2. If you are unwell, have not been able to pre-register, or are uncomfortable being indoors in a group, we invite you to join us online.
  3. Doors and windows will remain open regardless of the weather or street noise.
  4. To begin, we are limiting the group size to 10 students.
  5. Following Diocesan Guidelines and the most recent CDC recommendation, please wear a mask inside the chapel.
  6. As the Eucharist will be livestreamed, please do not sit in the choir unless you are willing to be on camera.
  7. Following the Diocesan Guidelines, hymnbooks and prayerbooks will not be provided. Service bulletins will be available.
  8. At the Exchange of the Peace, please remain in your seats, and exchange the Peace with a smile, a wave, or a bow.
  9. Following Diocesan Guidelines, Holy Communion will be in one Kind (wafer bread) only. While Anglican tradition and practice has been to receive Holy Communion in both Kinds (Bread and Wine), the teaching of the Church has always been that the fullness of the Sacrament is received when it is received in one Kind only.
  10. Masks will not be required during Supper or in the Brothers’ Common Room.
