What does it mean when you say “All Are Welcome”?
It’s what makes us as an Episcopal church – the idea that all are welcome in our church, at our table. No matter your orientation, denomination, race, ethnicity, political beliefs, what has happened in your past – we come here together to worship and share in fellowship and love, just as Jesus taught us.
