Almighty God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication unto thee; and hast promised through thy well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name thou wilt be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions of thy servants as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth,
and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen.
— The Book of Common Prayer, p 59


Christian community is one in which each member lends one another comfort, joy, courage, and hope.  This happens in so many ways — both formal and informal. Each of these groups offers a way for us to take joy in companionship as we find new friends.

Conversation with the Rector

A casual time with our Rector, Father Robert, in the parish library on Tuesday mornings at 9:00am.  A great time to ask questions, meet other parishioners, share ideas, concerns, or joys with the goal of deepening relationships.

Breakfast Committee

Organize, prepare, and serve a hot breakfast to parishioners and guests on Sunday mornings at 8:00am and help clean up afterwards. It’s as much fun to share in the preparation together as it is to eat together! To learn more click on the “Parish Breakfast” button below.
