Why should I visit your church?”

Delighted you asked!  Church of the Holy Communion has served this community since 1848.  From the day we opened our doors we have cherished these essentials:

We worship God in the Beauty of Holiness.

Where else in this city can you find a Mozart mass sung as a mass? (and not as a concert).  To step through our doors is to be overwhelmed by physical beauty and spiritual transcendence.  It is indeed heaven on earth.

We worship God by serving our neighbor and respecting the dignity of every human being.

After the Civil War, Church of the Holy Communion was the very first voice in the city to provide schools for African American Children.  And we have never wavered in this commitment to justice and open and loving inclusion.  Today, we are at the forefront in this city for ministries of both justice and mercy.  We have a bi-weekly free medical clinic, food pantry, meals-on-wheels.  There is a job for everyone, and an opportunity for all to make our community a better place.
