The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is a worship-centered community that celebrates diversity, honors tradition, and transforms hearts and lives by building relationships across borders and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. We walk a "middle way" between the Reformed (Protestant) and Roman Catholic traditions, seeking to express the fullness of Biblical faith through liturgy, teaching, fellowship, and service.
