Who We Are
St. Brendan's Episcopal Church is an open and welcoming community of faith. We seek to serve God and support each other through worship and faith in action in an atmosphere of love, friendship, and compassion.
Our mission statement speaks to our identity and vision.
Jesus said, "I have come to give life—life in all its fullness" (John 10:10).
Our mission is the realization of fullness through: the worship of God; service to the world; active concern for each other; and education to expand the mind and spirit.
In the spring of 2017, St. Brendan's went through an intensive Appreciative Inquiry process to help us strategize and guide our future. As part of that process, we developed this mission focus statement:
We reaffirm this mission as we strive to:
love and accept all people as our neighbors;
nurture one another along our spiritual journeys through worship, formation, and community;
walk beside those with needs, responding to a changing world without ceasing;
spread the good news of God in Christ and share the good works God is doing at St. Brendan’s.
In April 2021, St. Brendan's will begin a months-long process of discernment. Led by the Holy Spirit, we will seek to understand more fully the resources of time, talent, and treasure that are available to us as we pursue God's work. We will also develop goals for our future as a parish--goals that will allow us to fulfill our baptismal promises. And in due course, we will call a priest to succeed Fr. Regis, who plans to retire at the end of December. Please click here to see the latest updates on this important process in the life of St. Brendan's.
