St Patricks Episcopal Church
St. Patrick's is a family-size Total Ministry parish in Madison Heights, Michigan.
Our theology and practice is based on our belief that by the nature of our baptism, we are all called to ministry. Our ministry support team has been commissioned by Bishop Wendell Gibbs and has three priests, a deacon and a pastoral care and outreach minister. Every member of our parish is encouraged and empowered to serve in ministry roles in the church, community, workplace and home environments.
We practice radical hospitality. As the main page of our website states, "Come As You Really Are. Some of us like to dress up, others prefer being casual. No matter your age, your marital status, who you love, who your ancestors are, who you voted for, or where you are on your spiritual journey ... All Are Welcome!
