On Sunday, October 20th, 2013, following the Bishop's visitation, Grace Church in Randolph suffered a devastating fire that destroyed the parish hall, kitchen, offices and education rooms, and severely damaged the sanctuary. After nearly two years of struggling with local and state regulations, we have finally broken ground on our replacement building and are working diligently to have it be "under roof" before winter arrives. We ask your prayers for safety for all involved in the construction project as we work for the glory of God.
You can follow progress of the construction on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GraceChurchRandolph

The International Commission for Anglican-Orthodox Dialogue will be meeting in Buffalo in mid-September. This group is in the middle of the fourth phase of its work so that the Orthodox churches and the Anglican churches of the world can reach common understandings about our shared Christian faith.
The topic of the current phase of the dialogue is on what is the nature of human beings and how human beings relate to God. This topic shapes how we understand ordination and marriage and the life of the Church as a human community. So the dialogue is addressing important topics.
