Welcome to Church of the Atonement!

Welcome to the Episcopal Church of the Atonement!

The Church of the Atonement was formed over a century ago as a congregation of the Episcopal Church. Since then, the parish has striven to worship God, to proclaim the Good News of God in Christ, and to serve Christ in all persons. Today, we continue to honor God as an active, visionary and inclusive anglo-catholic congregation. We are committed to ministries of prayer and worship, of lifelong Christian learning, of outreach and justice, and of compassionate care for one another and the world. You are welcome here. Come join us, a vibrant spiritual presence on the corner of Ardmore and Kenmore!
