We are the flagship church of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida and we exist to experience, embody, and extend the timeless love of Jesus Christ.
We experience the God of the Bible in worship, using ancient practices of singing, scripture reading, incense, and the celebration of the sacraments.
Our worship impacts our life together as Christians as we embody our worship in nurturing community. Virtually every day of the week we offer opportunities to grow in the faith.
The good news of God's love in Jesus Christ is for the whole world, no exceptions. We seek to extend our experience and embodiment of God as a gift to our city and world!
Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have
made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and
make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily
lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness,
may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission
and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.
