- We bridge cultural, racial, economic and gender divides for Christ

The Parish is a fresh expression of an ancient faith, rooted in the history and tradition of the Anglican Church.
We belong to a worldwide Anglican Communion, constituting the third largest Christian body globally. The Anglican Church in North America unites 112,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico into a single Church. As Anglicans, we hold to the via media, or “middle way.” This middle way teaches us to make room for all we see in Jesus, trusting him to unite us even in the midst of differences.
The Parish is a part of a specific group of Anglican communities called Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO). Under the leadership of Bishop Todd Hunter, C4SO seeks to announce, embody, and demonstrate the Kingdom of God.
