Welcome to St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church, a neighborhood parish with a heart for the world! 

For over 60 years, St. Dunstan's has provided a spiritual home and "shelter from the storm" for all sorts and conditions of people: local residents and passing wayfarers; families and individuals; young people and seniors; life-long Christians, and those just beginning to explore a relationship with God.  In short, there is a place for you.  If you have never visited St. Dunstan's before, or if it has been a long time since you have worshipped with us, we encourage you to come visit soon.  

We are a warm, growing, inclusive Christian community, and we would be delighted to count you among our number. As an Episcopal Church and a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, we strive to offer a "middle way" between the Protestant and Roman Catholic traditions.  Followers of Jesus Christ, we honor both Word and Sacrament, immersing ourselves in Holy Scripture each week before gathering at the Lord's Table to be fed by Holy Communion. Together we celebrate Communion (the Eucharist) on Sundays at 10:30 a.m., and we invite you to join us at any time.

We hope that you will take a few moments to navigate the pages of this website and get to know us better. Perhaps you are "just passing through," or maybe you are looking for a permanent spiritual home: Whoever you are, and wherever you are on your journey of faith, know that you are most welcome here.  Come and see for yourself! 

Warmly and faithfully,   

The Reverend Patricia Phaneuf Alexander, Rector
