    •Declared the Parish of the Epiphany a “level 2” sanctuary church. As a level 2 sanctuary church the Parish of the Epiphany might be called upon to provide support to a level 1 church, a church in which people seeking sanctuary might live. This decision comes following a training about how churches can be sanctuaries, thorough discussion at the mission and outreach committee, and our commitment to “love kindness.” Read more about the sanctuary movement

    •Approved up to $25,000 to redesign and to make accessible the front of the church. Work for this project will take about two weeks, and will begin this spring.  More


    •Continuing our work from the vestry retreat (early in February) we evaluated our progress in achieving objectives in the parish’s strategic plan We have now considered every objective, and will look at our “success” and “need for growth” to identify ministry priorities for 2017-2018.

    •In his report the rector announced his decision to appoint a discernment committee for Brett Johnson, who is hearing a call to priesthood. More

    •Bishop Harris is making an episcopal visitation on Sunday, April 2nd, where she’ll preach and celebrate at both services, and meet with the vestry.
