An Inclusive Parish of the Episcopal Church
in the Anglo-Catholic Tradition
Worship With Us
To be a member of Church of the Advent is to be a part of a worshiping community. Worship is the central purpose of the life of our parish, and we've maintained a strong liturgical tradition in our 150-year history. Daily worship is a central experience that binds us as a catholic Christian community. Liturgies are conducted according to the 1979 Book of Common Prayer using Rite 2. We gather daily to celebrate Mass on a schedule to fit the diverse needs of the community in which we live. Sunday Masses are a joyous celebration of the Resurrection of our Savior.
We invite you to make daily worship a part of your everyday life.
What We Believe
The Church of the Advent of Christ the King is an Anglo-Catholic parish of the Episcopal Diocese of California which is part of the Anglican Communion of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
How We Worship
The style of worship at Church of the Advent is an expression of our Anglo-Catholic heritage. Our Solemn Mass service is a rich celebration filled with color, light, music, movement and incense.
Latin Chant Mass
The Latin Eucharist at Church of the Advent provides a contemplative alternative to the more active styles of worship which have been emphasized in the Episcopal Church in recent decades, and also continues a little-known strand in Anglican tradition.
