Important Notice

It is with profound sadness that we report the death of our beloved rector, Father Frederick Thomas on May 26, after a short illness. A Solemn Requiem Mass was celebrated on Saturday, June 4. As a parish we will unite in purpose and honor Father Thomas by living our mission to glorify God through Anglo-Catholic worship, music, preaching, and teaching. We shall miss him, but we shall go forward with faith, as he would want us to.
