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.

Donations for the Home for the Little Wanderers

ECW Raffle — Knitted Fair Isle Blanket
A colorful, full size blanket, beautifully knitted by Joan Dorman and Cathey Sell in the Fair Isle pattern. The vibrant colors of greens, blues, red, and ivory will bring light and cheer to any room. Knitted from acrylic yarn, the blanket is washable. The blanket’s value is estimated at $150.
Fair Isle knitting is a stranded colorwork technique where the unused yarn floats along the wrong side of the work. This creates a knit fabric that is not only stunning, but also warm since the unused yarn in the back provides extra layers.
Tickets are available for $1 each or 6 for $5. Contact Dotti at 549-7452 for raffle tickets. The winning ticket will be drawn on December 10. Winner does not need to be present to win.
