Our mission is the realization of fullness of life through:
- Worship of God
- Service to the world
- Active concern for each other
- Education to expand the mind and spirit
St. Brendan’s is described by newcomers as open and welcoming. To that description add spiritual, which expresses itself primarily in liturgy, prayer and service to our community. The parish’s commitment to outreach is so powerful that, from its inception, St. Brendan’s has devoted 10 percent of its income to charitable and humanitarian needs both near and far. Our parishioners are extremely generous — with time, with funds and with caring for each other and the community. This is St. Brendan’s spirituality in action.
One parishioner said this in our latest parish profile: “It’s a continual journey of discovery. It’s up to you to take what is given to you and work with it and apply it to your own life. This church allows you to think and question.”
Many Brendanites have a desire to go deeper in their spiritual experiences. They want to know more about being Episcopalians and how to be better followers of Jesus. They desire leadership that will educate, encourage and model a life that imitates that of Jesus in the gospels. Support for growth in prayer and contemplation, as well as a lively liturgical experience, are important. New members are not only welcome, but they also are seen as the fruit of our spirituality.
Said another parishioner: “Worship is what you come to do, but spirituality is what’s in you.”
