The Church of the Redeemer is a welcoming and caring community. Our congregation is curious and questioning. We have a history of social justice and outreach ministries, and lesbian and gay members are integral to our parish life. Worship is the heart of Redeemer’s life – it brings our family and church lives into one as we celebrate the liturgy, the word, and the sacrament together.
The Church of the Redeemer is currently in the exciting process of seeking a new permanent rector, while under the interim leadership of Rev. Diane Shepard. The search committee is now accepting applications.
