Can You Help our Littlest Parishioners?
We are currently putting together a team of parishioners who would be willing to be “on call” during one service on one Sunday a month to provide some extra help to our nursery staff if needed. Our nursery is always professionally staffed but as we have seen some increases in nursery attendance sometimes an extra set of helping eyes or hands can go a long way. Volunteering to be a backup sub for the nursery is easy and can be done in less than a minute through this link .

Parishioners in the News
Recently the Richmond Times Dispatch featured articles on two of our parishioners: Robin Telfian and Brad Sauer . Congratulations!

The Red Door Ministry
Thanks to YOUR generosity, more than 5,000 people were served at the Red Door in 2019. More than 1,000 volunteers helped cook, serve, or clean up at the weekly community meal. Every Friday, our clothing closet distributes both hygiene items and seasonal attire to hundreds. We appreciate your support, and hope to see you in 2020!

From the Discernment Committee
Last fall we began the process to find a new rector. Bill Queen held five interim sessions to hear your thoughts. Our average participation in those was around 75. Since everyone’s voice is important in this process, the Discernment Committee has launched a survey and we want to hear from EVERYONE, including you! The survey is coming out soon, so be on the lookout for it.
Even if you participated in the interim sessions, we ask that you complete the survey also; it will take about a half hour of your time. Your input remains confidential (only members of the Discernment Committee will see your answers and there is nothing from the survey that identifies you), so please help us select the right rector by completing your survey today. Thank you! For more information, contact the committee (confidentially) at
