Serving God's People for over 130 years!
Welcome to Atonement
Welcome to the Church of the Atonement, an Episcopal church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. For more than 130 years, Atonement has been a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our Edgewater neighborhood and in the wider community. Today, we continue in that witness as an active, visionary, and inclusive congregation that serves God through daily prayer and worship, the practice of lifelong Christian learning, and ministries of outreach and justice.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your walk of faith, you are most welcome here. Your presence, your faith, your prayers, and your questions are wanted here. Your gifts and your energy are needed here. You are invited to come and see what God has in mind for you here.
Rector Search Committee
Our search for a new rector needs to start with forming a search committee. Printed forms to nominate yourself will be available at the back of the sanctuary. Please submit your form by Sun., May 22, if you’d like to considered as a possible member of the committee. Although we have begun to try to identify an interim rector, we do not today have more specific information on that.
The Path of a Pilgrim
Please join us for this week’s parish forum at 10 a.m. on Sun., May 15 in the gymnasium. The forum this Sunday will feature Richard Kieckhefer speaking on pilgrimage. He will talk about his own experience walking the Camino to Santiago de Compostela, and will compare that pilgrimage with the more modern pilgrimage to Lourdes, and he will reflect more generally on what pilgrimage means for Christian spirituality.
