"The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ." - The Episcopal Church Visitors' Center
We gather each Sunday at 9:15 am for viewing a provocative DVD about some aspect of the Christian faith and life, or for some topical discussion led by the Rector.
The first Sunday of the month our parish nurse offers some educational aspect of living healthy.
Seasonal educational events happen during Lent when we gather each Wednesday to share a simple soup, salad and bread meal and to engage a particular aspect of our faith. In 2014 we used the personalities in the Lenten Gospel lessons to look at our lives and theirs. This was co-led by The Rev. John Marcantonio and The Rector.
We use the Journey to Adulthood curriculum which is in wide use across the Episcopal Church. It consists of 3 distinct modules of two years each. The program begins with Rite 13 for those who will turn 13 over the two years of that program. Rite 13 explores the question of what it means to male and female.
Then they move to the Journey to Adulthood group which explores what it means to be an Adult. This is for 15-16 year olds and Confirmation and a pilgrimage is part of the activity of these two years.
Finally Juniors and Seniors move into YAC (Young Adults in the Church) which explores what it means to be an adult in the Church and the Society. Each section is led by two unrelated adults of both genders. Parents cannot lead these groups as we want a safe place for all to express themselves.
