We are an Episcopal Church, part of a national network of parishes and chaplaincies rooted in Jesus Christ and dedicated to the work of healing and reconciliation to which Christ calls us. You can learn more about our beliefs here.  

Focused and inspired through worship, we go out into the world to care for and work with our neighbors, near and far. Some of our central commitments are:

  •  Developing community gardening in Watertown and promoting food justice;
  •  Educating about, praying for, and promoting a just peace for all in Israel/Palestine.
  •  Welcoming all to Christ's table and as full partners in ministry, including LBGT persons. 
  •  Through our life together and our educational programs, forming our children in  contemplative practice, care for the earth, and doing justice.

Blind and visually impaired people have served in leadership and been active members of our parish for generations. We have braille hymns and large-print copies of the service bulletin available each week.

We are active in the Alewife Deanery of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, a regional cluster of parishes working together and resourcing one another for mission. We strive to use our church facility to serve the community as much as possible, hosting recovery groups, children's programs, Real Meals (community dinners), throughout the week.
