Please join us for Holy Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. through the summer. Our historic sanctuary is currently undergoing much-needed restoration, involving extensive plaster work around the stained glass windows. During this process of restoration, we are moving our worship space to our Parish Hall, graced by the extraordinary Angel Windows, pictured here.
"Being out of our historic church is an inconvenience, I know, but so far I am seeing this as a way to get to know each other better, and to love each other more dearly."
