Vestry Statement about Muslim Community

 

The Vestry of Epiphany Episcopal church goes on public record as rejecting the anti-Muslim rhetoric in public forums and the hatred aimed at the Muslim community. We vigorously endorse the rights of the Muslim citizens and residents of the United States and oppose any extraordinary immigration restrictions on people of Muslim backgrounds and faith. We are grateful to our Muslim neighbors who minister with us in serving the homeless during Christmas at our Hypothermia Shelter.  Our doors are always open to all in need and to all seeking to worship God and serve in His name regardless of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation. God loves all people. No exceptions.
