Welcome home to Grace

An Inclusive Community using Traditional Liturgy for a Modern World

When you see this sign, we mean it.

 

Whatever your race, gender, sexual identity, affectional orientation, political bent, or past relationship with God and religion, you are welcome here. There's no need to check your brain or your questions at the door.

 

We are a parish in a hierarchical church using the Book of Common Prayer in traditional liturgical worship that believes the voice of God still speaks prophetically to people today.

Bishop Lee visited in March!

It was a memorable weekend with Bishop Jeffrey Lee and Deacon Barbara Sinclair. Nearly everyone turned out for a celebratory dinner at the Packinghouse on Saturday evening.

Our worship Sunday morning was truly memorable, and many people contributed to make it so. We are grateful to Bishop Lee and to Deacon Sinclair, to the Rev. Peggy Lee and Eucharist minister Kathleen Bashem, and to organist Gail Masinda, vocalist Becky Hixon, and accompanist Gareth Cordery.

Potluck was a time of sharing stories, expressing our hopes, learning about events in the rest of the diocese, and getting to know each other better.

“Christians are the body of baptized folk called into service to the dream of God, where the poor hear good news, the captives are set free, the sick are healed, all are fed, housed, clothed, and people live together in peace. All are free to bless God and each other in creative and productive relationship.” 

-ECUSA Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori
