Welcome to St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church (website ☺). “Grace to you and peace.” (I Thessalonians 1:1). We are a small community that extends a big invitation to you. Small means intimate. We are a community that seeks to live in intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, “Light from Light” (as was declared about Him at the Council of Nicaea—modern-day Turkey—in 325). And we seek, by His goodness, to live as Brothers and Sisters. We are on a journey, a journey of discovery of the mystery of divine love. Our weekly Sunday celebration centers on the Christian Scriptures and on the special gift of God that is the Eucharist. Please join us at 9:00 am.
We have recently begun a new chapter in our history. Beginning on October 16 of this year, 2013, we have a new Vicar (shepherd appointed by the Bishop): me!” I was ordained in 1996, and I bring with me 14 years of experience in the monastic life. You can read my biography, if you so desire.
In the next weeks and months, we will be working to give our little church on the hill a fresh look, and, above all, we will be offering fresh opportunities for spiritual growth. Keep an eye out for these. We will also continue to develop our website, that it become a helpful resource: with sermons and thoughts on the Christian life as it is understood and lived in the Episcopal Church and a host of other themes, and, of course, practical information. Come back, therefore, for another web visit!
Will you consider joining us as we grow? Your voice will be heard. Dare I say, God’s voice will be heard. God always responds to hearts that seek: “Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8). We are seekers who have been found. Our door is open to you, no matter where you may be in your journey, no matter where you may stand on the spectrum of thought. Welcome.
Yours faithfully in Christ,
