Differences in the Sunday Morning Worship Serivces

By Peter Vanderveen

The worship of The Episcopal Church is richly varied in substance and style. In keeping with this richness, we provide three different experiences of worship each Sunday.

The 7:45am service is a meditative celebration of the Eucharist in the more formal language of Rite One. Its consistent rhythm as a spoken service provides a simple yet grounded recitation of our faith.

The 9:00am service is more robust and proclamatory in its pageantry, music, and variation. We use different expressions of the Eucharistic liturgy, and at regular intervals we observe appointed feasts for saints of the church in a simplified intergenerational service.

The 11:15am service liturgy will include two forms of workship.

The first Sunday of each month will be Holy Eucharist, Rite II, from the Book of Common Prayer. 

For the remaining Sundays of each month, the service will be an abridged form of Choral Matins, designed to give emphasis to beauty, prayerfulness, and the unique expression of the Psalms. Its mood will be distinct from the other Sunday morning services, and its focus will be in providing a particular experience of sabbath, offering space for solace and reason for strength.


Vespers at The Redeemer




Final Vespers at The Redeemer for this season, June 7 at 5pm

Matthew Laughlin will play several of J. S. Bach’s solo cello suites. Remain with us for a light supper immediately following Vespers.


The Prélude from each of the following cello suites of J. S. Bach:

1st Suite G major

2nd Suite d minor

3rd Suite C major

4th Suite E-flat major

6th Suite D major


Matthew R. Laughlin grew up in Newtown, PA, and in his youth was a member of the Greater Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and the Delaware Valley Philharmonic. He studied privately with Lorne Munroe (formerly Principal Cellist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and later with the New York Philharmonic). He studied at the Juilliard School for the Performing Arts in New York and graduated with a Bachelors and Masters degrees studying there with Lorne Munroe, Channing Robbins, and Leonard Rose. After Juilliard, he took a 28-year sabbatical and worked as Production Manager for New York area book publishers. Recently after much soul-searching he decided to once again resume his musical life and for his initial performances has chosen the Bach Cello Suites as his court repertoire. He plans to be a fixture in the musical life of Bryn Mawr for the foreseeable future as teacher and performer.
