Update 6/21/20: we are following the guidance of state and local officials, as well as the guidance of the Episcopal Diocese of New York in regards to phased reopening when it is safe. Starting in July, we will be having socially distanced services (2 English and 2 Spanish) with many changes (e.g., physical distancing protocols, no congressional singing, mask use, sanitation, less than 25% capacity, and Eucharist in one kind). Please see your email and/or connect with us via telephone for complete details and to request a preferred Mass time. We will also continue to broadcast online for those who cannot or prefer not to attend in person at this time.

This includes office hours, weekly meetings, Wednesday services, Sunday services, coffee hour and other parish and mission activities. We will continue to pray for and with you, provide support via phone and web, and assist in any way we can.

Culturally Diverse

Our parish members come from diverse cultural backgrounds and a wide variety of religious traditions within the universal church. Our vision is to be a unified congregation that worships in two languages but otherwise strives to be one in all other aspects of our common life. Mass is offered in both English and Spanish.

Welcome to All

We welcome first-time visitors, regardless of denomination. All baptized persons are welcome to share the sacraments of the Lord’s Body and Blood. Our faith community makes every effort to be welcoming and embracing without being overwhelming or invasive.

Parish Outreach

Our parish is committed to serving the needs of those who live on the social and economic margins of society with various efforts directed toward those in need in the wider community.
