Who We Are
Founded as a parish in 1723, with the first wooden church built in 1752-3 and the second in 1814-1816, we are an historical parish in the heart of downtown New Haven, but we are also a living and vibrant community that is connected to an even wider community. Our community draws from downtown New Haven and largely from the surrounding suburbs.
We are a diverse parish that strives to welcome all people into our community of faith. Our diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and ages all draw us together into a community centered on God’s radical love.
We want to serve God by the way we live every day of the week in the world.
We are blessed to have a tapestry of active members that enrich our life together as a parish.
We all may not agree on many issues; but as we pray, sing, serve others and learn together we realize that what is really important is what we do agree on and that is our mission together.
We are a congregation filled with joy, and we share that joy with others. We also share each other's sorrows and difficult times.
We are made up of people who are longtime Episcopalians and those new to the Christian faith. We are a community of single people, partnered/married people and families.
Wherever you are in your journey, we invite you to join us. We invite you to be open to the possibility that God loves you and created you for a purpose, and that you might discover that purpose here with us.
