Our parishioners support a variety of outreach programs within the Waretown area and also welcome the generosity of neighbors in the surrounding area. These include a Food Pantry, the Good Samaritan House for homeless men in transition, and the Thrift Store which provides clothing and household items at reduced prices. We welcome multiple 12-Step groups into our Parish Hall, a Boy Scout Troop, and Gift Auctions. We have a Sunday worship service, a Saturday evening service in our Garden Chapel during the spring through autumn months, Sunday School, Sunday Seminar Bible Study discussion group, Bible Study on Wednesday evening, and blessing of the animals on St. Francis Day. We also host a Pancake Supper and Lenten Meals and program evening, Welcome Home Sunday in September, Harvest Supper before Thanksgiving, an All-American Breakfast on Sundays, and a Christmas pageant. Our youth below to the EYC and our ladies enjoy the ECW with craft shows and bake sales. Each month we publish a Life and Times for all parishioners to read and enjoy.

Our Mission: Welcoming Everyone, Connecting with God, Building Community, Transforming Lives.
