Everybody’s welcome, no exceptions!

With the larger Episcopal Church, we affirm and celebrate the lives, marriages, and vocations of LGBTQ+ people. We recognize that Christians and churches have caused deep wounds, and we desire to be a place of safety and healing.

Rev. Miranda’s Sabbatical

From August through October of 2018, our rector, Miranda Hassett, is going on sabbatical for a time of rest and study. Leadership during this time will be a team effort. Father Jonathan Melton, the campus minister at St. Francis House Episcopal Student Center on the UW campus, will preach and preside most Sunday mornings. Father Jonathan’s primary commitment during the week is to his work at St. Francis House, so week-to-week oversight of church life will be shared by our Wardens, Shirley Laedlein and Michelle Der Bedrosian, and two of our associate clergy, Father John Rasmus and Father Tom McAlpine. Sharon Henes is the point person for our Parish Renewal events. Most of our ongoing ministries and events will continue as usual. As always, with general questions, contact Ann in the parish office at (608) 238-2781 or office@stdunstans.com .  Please read the “Sabbatical Covenant” and “What You Need To Know” pages for more information.

In response to Christ’s divine humanity, St. Dunstan’s strives to seek, love, and serve God, welcoming all to gather in worship, serve those in need, care for the environment, and listen and respond to each other.

A Welcome Message from Rev. Miranda

Rev. Miranda blessing the waters at the Baptismal Font, with kids gathered around in the foreground.If this is your first encounter with St. Dunstan’s, welcome! We hope you will consider joining us for worship soon. I would love to meet and chat, and to answer any questions you may have about St. Dunstan’s parish or the Episcopal Church. You will find we are a warm and lively parish family, with lots of opportunities for engagement and shared ministry – and an equally warm welcome for those who simply want a place to worship on Sunday morning, without seeking more involvement at this time. I am available to make pastoral calls to anyone who is ill or going through a difficult time – or to have coffee with someone who’s struggling to make sense of it all – or to share conversation and prayer with someone seeking God’s guidance in their life – or to get down on the floor and talk about Jesus with kids. Please be in touch, and let’s explore where our mission as a parish connects with your life, your needs and your hopes. May the grace, love and fellowship of God be with you always.
Rev. Miranda+
