We are committed to working with and supporting our new rector as we go forward.

As one respondent to a parish profile survey said:

I value our sense of community, acceptance of all people, lack of pretension, and many opportunities to participate in ministry. For a small church, we do an incredible amount. Despite experiencing the pandemic, loss of our rector, and vast amounts of change in general this year, almost everyone has stayed active and committed and we have not missed a beat.

This enthusiasm and sense of service defines both parishes. If this defines your call learn more about us by visiting St. Patrick’s and St. John’s web sites at and
