Chapel Schedule and News

Live-streaming schedule

For those who cannot join us in person, some of our services will be live-streamed online. Those services listed in Red and Bold are live-streamed. Visit ssje.org/chapel to pray along, or check out the Friends of SSJE Facebook page. We hope you will join us often.

Tenebrae

The Chapel is Open!!

The chapel now for in-person worship, and private prayer, throughout the day. The doors will open before Morning Prayer and close after Compline (Tuesday – Saturday), and from Morning Prayer to after Evening Prayer on Sundays. You are welcome to join us for in-person worship, or for a time of private prayer.

Because this is our home, and several Brothers fall into the vulnerable persons category, we will require all who attend chapel services to be fully vaccinated and boosted.

Following CDC and local guidelines masks will now be optional for those attending services in the chapel. If you have any concerns about the transmission of COVID-19 during a service, we recommend wearing a mask. We encourage and fully support those who may feel more comfortable wearing a mask to do so, for whatever reason. Extra masks are always available at the back of the church near the organ.

About the Daily Office


The Brothers’ worship schedule, what has traditionally been called the “Daily Office,” is described in the SSJE Rule of Life as:

“...a sustained act of union with Christ by which we participate in his unceasing offering of love to the Father. In reciting the psalms, singing canticles and hymns, proclaiming the divine word in Scripture, or lifting our voices in prayer, we are to enter more and more into the mind, heart, and will of Christ, and to be borne up by the Spirit in him to the Father.

"Our praying of the psalter, which is the heart of the Daily Office, takes us ever deeper into the mystery of the incarnation; the psalms give voice to the whole range of human experience which Christ has embraced and redeemed as the Savior of the world. As we sing and chant deep levels of our being are involved; our hearts are lifted up in greater exultation. And music enhances our worship with riches inherited from many ages.”
