St. Dunstan’s is a progressive Episcopal church that strives to be a place of welcome, refuge, prayer, learning, and challenge. Here you will find an intimate, caring community that finds more grace in the search for meaning than absolute certainty.
We invite all people to join us around God’s altar, and to receive nourishment through the body and blood of Christ at the Eucharist.
The words of the hymn “Let Us Build a House” express our philosophy well:
“Let us build a house where hands will reach beyond the wood and stone to heal and strengthen, serve and teach, and live the Word they’ve known. Here the outcast and the stranger bear the image of God’s face. Let this house proclaim from floor to rafter: All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place.”
We invite you to join us!
