What to expect
We want your visit to St. David's to be a warm and welcoming experience. We believe that when you are our guest, we are co-hosts with God, who has extended an invitation to each of us to share in the love we have come to know at St. David's. Please stop by our Welcome Center in the main entrance of the Church, and a member of our Welcome Ministry will be there to assist you. We also encourage you to fill out a Welcome Card, which may be found at the Welcome Center, in the pew racks, or online (here). The Welcome Card will enable us to send you information about our Church. It can be given to a greeter, or member of the vestry, dropped in the offering plate, or in the box located at the Welcome Center.
The Eucharist culminates in Communion, a shared meal of bread and wine in remembrance of Jesus' death and resurrection. An usher will invite you to come to the altar rail. You may stand or kneel at the rail, though most parishioners kneel. Most parishioners hold their hands out with their palms open, and a minister will come to you to place bread in your hand. You may then take the bread to your mouth or dip the bread in the wine. You may receive the wine directly from the chalice by guiding it with your hand if you prefer. If you would not like to receive Communion, simply cross your arms across your chest like an "X", and a minister will offer a prayer of blessing instead.
