Whether you have been a life-long Episcopalian or whether you are curious about how the Church might be relevant and meaningful for you in today's world, we welcome you. On any given day of the week you may find us carrying hot food from our kitchen to hungry neighbors, or absorbed in the beauty of music and liturgy. You may find us hosting world class musicians through our partnership with the Eastman School of Music, or pulling stones from our garden beds. You may find us deep in study of deChardin’s “The Phenomenon of Man” or driving someone home from the hospital. You will find us both deepening our faith and asking questions; called to both action and contemplation by the words of our Scriptures; and circling around Christ's Table with all our likenesses and differences as One Body.
Whether you are a sojourner passing by or looking for a parish family, it is my sincere hope you will stop by. We would love to host you.
The Rev. Ruth Ferguson
