Difference Between Rite I and Rite II
 

Rite I
The Rite I liturgy in the Episcopal Church is based on the old English language form.  The service is spoken and it has a contemplative nature where worshipers can participate through spoken responses and prayers.  There is presently little to no music at this service.
 

Rite II
This service is the most festive of the celebratory services held each Sunday with worshipers joining in the singing of hymns, sung responses and prayers.  It is also the largest gathering and reflects the diversity of the church family.  Rite II liturgy differs from Rite I in that the Rite II services date from the current Book of Common Prayer revised in the 1970’s while Rite I dates back to the 1600’s.  Rite II uses wording that is in contemporary or every day English.  The choir leads the sung portions of the service which include hymns, a psalm and an offertory anthem.
