For decades, Episcopal Churches around the United States have been identified by a sign, which shows the Episcopal Shield and the words, "The Episcopal Church Welcomes You."
Although the Episcopal Church across the United States and locally in the Diocese of Ohio has been challenged and changed in some ways over the years, those words . . .
The Episcopal Church Welcomes You
. . .are truer than ever before.
You will find us to be old and young, male and female, gay and straight, single, married, divorced, and widowed, white and black, CEO and unemployed, rich and poor. In fact we are like everybody. We work in our communities, we try to further God's kingdom on earth, we study and we ask questions as we move deeper into the mystery of God. We support one another in good times and bad, and we try to see Christ in everyone we meet.
We are known for our engaging and beautiful worship services. For those who have grown up Catholic, the service, known as the Mass or Eucharist, will be very familiar. For those of reformed tradition or no religious tradition at all, we think you may find a spiritual home in a church that respects its tradition and maintains its sense of awe and wonder at the power and mystery of God. The Episcopal Church welcomes everyone at the communion table, because we believe everyone is invited into a relationship with the living God.
There are no prerequisites in the Episcopal Church...
Everyone is welcome. No Exceptions.
