Welcome to St. Bede’s Episcopal Church

We are a welcoming faith community as diverse as the many faces of Santa Fe. Honoring every person as a child of God, we seek to walk with Christ, to love and serve those in need, in our own community and beyond. We worship in the Episcopal tradition and are nourished by prayer, study, and fellowship.

Somos una comunidad de fieles en la que todo el que lo desea es bienvenido, una comunidad tan diversa como las muchas caras de Santa Fe. Al honrar a cada ser como hijo de Dios, aspiramos a seguir los pasos de Cristo, a amar y servir a los necesitados de nuestra propia comunidad y más halla. Adramos según la tradición Episcopal y nos nutrimos espiritualmente de oración, estudio y hermandad.
