Sunday Service (Rite Two) at St. Mary's By The Sea

Sunday Services - All are welcome at God’s table

We worship together on Sunday mornings with a Rite One service at 8:00 am and a Rite Two Choral Eucharist (using contemporary language) at 10:00 am.  At our 10:00 am Eucharist, we love to sing traditional favorite hymns and a variety of anthems and other songs. Lay involvement includes lectors, chalice bearers, acolytes, ushers, greeters, Sunday School teachers, Altar Guild, and choir.  For all, there is a sense of welcome, acceptance, and the opportunity for spiritual renewal and growth.

St. Mary’s Parish was founded by a small group of Episcopal women in 1886. It was built, in 1887, on land donated by the Pacific Improvement Company and was the first church building constructed in Pacific Grove. The architect, William Hamilton, of Sacramento, modeled St. Mary’s after a church in Bath, England.


Please consider a visit to St. Mary’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church to appreciate this sacred space in person. You are always welcome to join us for Sunday services and to enjoy this special place adored by countless worshipers for over a century.
