Welcome & Overview
We are constantly working toward greater understanding and radical inclusion of all of God’s children.
Thanks to the work of many of our forebears and the continued effort of today’s Episcopalians, neither race, nor gender, nor sexual orientation can prevent an individual from participating fully in the life of the church or answering God’s call to ministry. In addition, the canons of the Episcopal Church today make the rite of marriage available to all people, regardless of gender. We remain committed to social justice worldwide and, as stewards of God’s creation, promote environmental responsibility and sustainability.
Our Worship Style
Sunday is traditionally when Episcopalians gather for worship, although services may be held at any time. Episcopalians worship in many different styles, yet all worship in the Episcopal Church is based in the Book of Common Prayer, which gives it a familiar feel, no matter where you go.
