Welcome Visitors

St. Aidan’s: The Heart of Rockwood

Dear friends,

Welcome to St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church. We are delighted to introduce ourselves to you! Whether you are a “cradle” Episcopalian or just curious about what an Episcopal church is all about, you are welcome here! All Christians and those who might describe themselves as “seekers,” no matter their ages, genders, sexual orientation, denomination, and marital status or life circumstances, are welcome here and are invited to join with us for worship, fellowship and …yes….fun!

If you are familiar with the Episcopal Church or, perhaps, a Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Methodist or other Anglican form of worship, you will feel right at home here. St. Aidan’s is a liturgical church and follows the form of Christian liturgy handed down through the ages, centering our worship through Holy Communion, the Eucharist, blending traditional prayer and song with current Episcopal worship and practice. If you are less familiar with the Episcopal church, you might find it helpful to look at this link in order to find out more about what to expect from a “liturgical” church:

Many people coming from non-liturgical worship experiences, find they enjoy the rhythm of a liturgical calendar and form of worship and we urge you to see if this is true for you!

Life at St. Aidan’s is filled with opportunities for meeting people and creating life-long friendships. Whether coming together to participate in our services or whether joining in with one of the many ministries available here, you will find many opportunities to bring added joy and fulfillment in your life. Come and get to know us and walk with us as we travel together through our liturgical calendar of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Pentecost as well as special events, such as All Saints, All Souls, St. Francis Day and the Blessing of the Animals, and many other feast days which we celebrate.  All contain special events and all add a special measure of meaning to our lives. We’d love to share them all with you and look forward to seeing you here among us at St. Aidan’s.

Welcome!
