Saint Saviour's Episcopal Church
Old Greenwich, CT

Spiritual Formation

 

Saint Saviour’s offers Bible studies and other book discussions (fiction and non-fiction) throughout the year.  We usually meet in the chapel on Tuesday evenings or on Sundays mornings.  A brochure outlining upcoming discussions is available.  In our discussions, we try to connect our own experiences with what an author has to say about life before God.  This connection is a particularly important part of Adult Inquirers classes held, usually during Lent, to help prepare men and women for baptism, confirmation, or reception into the Episcopal Church. In addition, we have the opportunity to hear from guests who talk with us about particular aspects of Christian life or about social or environmental problems that confront God’s other creatures.  We also have occasional quiet days and retreats. 

 

If you would like to learn more about upcoming classes or programs, or if you have ideas for programs or events you would like to see in the future, please speak with the rector.


Outreach 

 

The mission of outreach at Saint Saviour’s Church is to actively support people in need – both locally and around the world.  We work to achieve our mission through outreach grants and personal contact.  We also seek opportunities for fellowship with members of area parishes.  Our hope is to build relationships that might afford 

us the opportunity for shared mission activity in the future. Among the activitiesin which we have recently engaged are the following:   

*         collecting school supplies for children of an impoverished parish in the South Bronx

*         providing food for the Lower Fairfield County Food Bank;

        supporting the ministry of L’Eglise de l’Epiphanie, a Haitian

           congregation in Stamford;

*         parish sponsorship of the Bishop’s Fund for Children race and fair; and

*         supporting the efforts of parishioners making mission trips to the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Colombia, and El Salvador.  

 

Working in cooperation with the Sunday School, Saint Saviour’s also  

*          undertook a children’s book drive to help needy children;

*          collected and assembled baskets of household and baby items for the Family Re- entry program (which helps people recently released from prison); and

*          participated in Operation Christmas Child, collecting and donating small gifts for disadvantaged children around the world.   

 

In the future, we would like to expand our activities by actively supporting another parish, either overseas or our immediate community. The Outreach Committee presently meets every other month and welcomes the participation of anybody who would like to reach out to others.
