A big welcome to Reverend Jessie Smith-our interim priest through June. May God bless her as she serves St. Hilary's for our spiritual needs in service to God.
St. Hilary's is a mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. The Episcopal Church in the United States is a member of the Worldwide Anglican Communion. Our history in the United States predates the establishment of the country, being brought over with the first wave of settlers to the new world. Many of our country's Founders were members of the Anglican community. After the establishment of the United States as an independent country, American Anglicans took the name Episcopal, meaning "overseen by bishops".
Episcopalians are neither Roman Catholic or Protestant. Our Liturgy resembles the Roman Catholic Church from which we sprang, but embraces a view of acceptance to all who come to worship and heed God's call through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
St. Hilary's invites all visitors with open arms. Visitors who have been baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and who have been admitted to the Communion in their own church, are invited to share Holy Communion here. We are all called to repent of our sins, and to approach the Holy Communion in which we find the Real Presence of Christ.
Feel free to drop by for services, or to call our Priest and staff with any questions you may have. You will find us warm, friendly and welcoming. We truly believe that "God loves us all. No exceptions." Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
