ABOUT ST. GILES’
St. Giles' has a strong tradition of welcoming and openness. We hope to make comfortable all people who visit, try us out, or come earnestly looking for a new church home, regardless of their religious background, social situation, or political-philosophical orientation. We feel there’s a warm place for anyone at St. Giles' and we want you to feel that way too.
Within the Episcopal branch of the Anglican Church—that branch of the “holy catholic and apostolic church” stemming from centuries-old English tradition—any baptized person and anyone who desires a closer relationship with Jesus Christ is welcomed at the Lord’s Supper. Please feel free to receive Communion with us whenever you, your family, spouse, children, or friends are here.
