Hearty Breakfasts - Approximately four Sundays per year we invite our neighbors living on the streets and area homeless shelters to Bishops Hall so we can serve them with a hearty breakfast, from 8 until 9 a.m. Volunteers are always welcome to join our parish family as we put the hospitality of Christ into practice.

We proclaim Christ crucified and risen,
and invite you to join with us in ministry together in his name.

News and Readings:


This is God’s purpose for us, just as it was for those disciples: to be joined forever to the Divine life of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; to know this larger life, to experience it, and to abide in it forever.
