If you visit Holy Comforter, you will find that we read a good bit of the Bible every week, and we hear a sermon in response to the scriptures. We profess the faith that we share, we pray for the needs of all people, and we celebrate the Eucharist along with the joys and blessings of life.
All of these things point us to the heart of our worship as Episcopalians: the Eucharist, or Holy Communion. We experience the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in this ancient sharing of bread and wine, which we celebrate each Sunday. Church is not just what happens on Sunday morning. We have many opportunities to worship together virtually or out in the community during the week.
Our goal at Holy Comforter is to make our worship simple and holy, lively and engaging.
We invite you to join us, wherever you may be along your own journey of faith.

The "Rite of Christian Initiation" is how we refer to the sacrament of Baptism at Holy Comforter. Baptism "sets the table" for a lifelong relationship with God.
