As an Episcopal Church parish, St. Saviour’s offers all you would expect regarding beauty in worship. At the same time, we provide much more than just worship on Sundays to our community. Our schools—programs of the parish—extend our ministry to all who come to us regardless of faith tradition. We believe this makes St. Saviour’s a chapel open to all and a place where God (however one understands God) can be encountered in every aspect.
Like any community, our history informs our present. You can see that our architecture seems better suited to the US southwest than to a town on the Long Island Sound. That’s because our founder, Father Liebler (who came from Riverside and St. Paul’s) felt called to ministry with the Navajos. Indeed, after building the chapel and the worship space and rectory and serving St. Saviour’s for many years, Father Liebler ultimately engaged in mission to Navajos—learning their language, translating the Bible and converting many to the Christian faith. Our parishioners have continued this connection through a pilgrimage to the mission he founded.
Father Liebler’s joy in the message of hope of Jesus Christ continues to infuse our enthusiastic welcome to our neighbors and friends. As Episcopalians, we reject indoctrination and embrace love—as Jesus taught us. We understand that we exist as an integral part of Old Greenwich where most of those we serve walk or bike or skateboard to us. We love this as we want to be a place of refuge and not of judgement for our neighbors and friends (to be) all around us. We hope you will decide to connect with us through our programs, worship or ministries.
We’re an Episcopal parish in Old Greenwich serving all who enter our doors since 1918.
