Get Involved


Outreach at St. Bede’s is a further expression of our worship of God. God’s goodness is worth extending authentic hospitality and welcome to neighbors at our doorstep in need. God’s grace is worth freely sharing our love and resources with neighbors of different cultures and in faraway lands.  Read more about our Outreach Grant program which provides funding to local needs.

Groups, Guilds, and Committees

The guilds, groups, and committees of St. Bede’s are an extension of our rector Mother Catherine for management of the parish. If you are interested in working in any of these areas, please let us know. The clergy or the Administrative Assistant can introduce you to individual coordinators.
