Welcome

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here.

“All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ himself.”
St. Benedict

St. Benedict is right, of course. The church isn’t a private club for the chosen few; rather, our doors and our hearts are open for everyone and to everyone. You are welcome here. We seek to welcome each person who comes our way as we would welcome Jesus, for God is quite creative: coming to us in persons and ways we can barely imagine. Our hearts and arms are ready to receive you, it is our calling and we seek to be faithful to our calling.

The kinds of folks you’ll find here …

Our faith community is an eclectic mix of people with differing backgrounds, life-experiences, and perspectives, united together in a common love of God and neighbor. Chances are, there’s someone like you at St. Hugh’s. We are single, married, married with kids, divorced, remarried, gay and lesbian, empty nesters, widowed, old, young; you name it, we’re here.

We are “young in the faith,” just beginning to ask questions; “teens in the faith,” just now piecing together who we are and what it means to follow Jesus; “maturing in the faith” exploring our gifts and serving others for the Lord, and “mature in the faith” reflecting on what we have been and done as we look back on our lives in our winter season of grace.

People of all backgrounds, races, abilities, and beliefs are part of the St. Hugh’s family. You’ll find a wonderful mix of brothers and sisters in the faith at St. Hugh’s, your “mountain home.” And our welcome doesn’t end here (on the website) and it doesn’t end at the door of the church. All persons are welcome to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion at St. Hugh’s, not just Episcopalians. Join us at the Lord’s Table this Sunday.

We gather for worship at 10:00 am on Sunday morning. If you’re looking here first, please do contact us by email for more information. We look forward to greeting you in the church this Sunday.
