"Reaching out
with faith, love and praise."

Looking for a church home?

Our mission statement captures three aspects of St. Anskar’s identity. We are a faithful community of Episcopalians who gather from a wide area each Sunday morning to praise God and share the Holy Eucharist. Growing in love implies our desire to build on our common goals, sense of fellowship, and feeling of belonging to a large extended family/community. We look to continue to grow in our expressions of praise to the God who created, redeemed and sustains us. The Rev. Andrea L. Wight is rector of St. Anskar Episcopal Church. Come meet her and the rest of our church family this Sunday.
