MISSION AND VISION

Mission

To know Christ and make Him known.

St. David’s is a warm and caring parish, welcoming diversity in age, gender and background. We nurture the development of our children and youth, and we serve the people of southeastern Connecticut.

We are a parish of all ages and stages of Christian development, traveling together on a spiritual journey.  We offer many opportunities to foster a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to share that knowledge and love with all people.

 We are an inclusive congregation in the mainstream of Episcopal tradition. Our Christ-centered faith is reflected in inspirational liturgy, sacramental events, prayer and joyful music. We have a firm commitment to provide Christian education and growth opportunities for all.

 Outreach is vital to our parish. We proclaim our faith through deeds of love by the generous commitment of our time, energy, gifts, prayer and financial support to make Christ known within our church, community, country and the world, as  we become the people God has called us to be.

Vision Statements and Goals for 2017

Love Unconditionally:  By September 1st, we want to host a spiritual retreat weekend for adults at St. David's.  It will be open to adults in the community and follow an Emmaus-like format.  

Serve Faithfully:  By the end of June, 2017, St. David's will hold an event to recognize, honor, and inspire parishioners' involvement and participation in their efforts to do God's work, responding to human needs i the church, the community, and the world -- welcoming and supporting international refugees, feeding the hungry, tutoring children and adults, and visiting the sick.  

Grow Spiritually  By June 30, 2017, develop the process for starting and evaluating existing St. David's Christian Formation ministries.  The process will include a measure to determine Christian formation effectiveness in revealing God's mission at St. David's.
