Welcome Statement

Saint Joseph’s Episcopal Church welcomes all people to our life together, including all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex people. We embrace the diversity of God’s creation in sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, faith history, economic status, marital status, disability status, and education. As siblings created in the image of God and new creations in Jesus Christ, we welcome all as beloved children of God. We commit to treat one another with love and respect.  We welcome the full participation of all people into the life and ministry of St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church.  We hope to journey with you into the full reconciliation that we have together in Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that we are all different and will not always think alike. We welcome all in our call to work together to love, understand, and respect one another as equals in Jesus Christ.
