    God's grace sustains us as we strive to know,
    love and serve others in our daily lives. 

    Wherever you are on your faith journey,
    you are welcome at Grace Episcopal Church.



     
    New Christian Education Director!
     
    We are pleased to announce that Jared Wyma-Bradley has accepted the position of Minister for Christian Formation for Children and Youth! Jared and his wife Amanda recently graduated from Seattle Pacific University, and in August moved to Auburndale so Jared could begin his studies in the Mdiv program at Boston University's School of Theology. The members of the Christian Education Committee who met with Jared this summer were impressed by his deep faith, energy, experience working with youth, and commitment to the church. Please welcome Jared and Amanda this Sunday!

    Grace Welcomes New Rector

    The Rev. Dr. Regina L. Walton was ordained in the Diocese of Massachusetts in 2007. She will come to Grace from Weston, where she is currently serving as Associate Rector at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. She previously served as Curate and Assistant Rector at the Parish of the Good Shepherd in Waban, and as Director of Children's Ministries at Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord.

    Originally from northern New Jersey, Regina has lived in Massachusetts since 1996. She received her B.A. from Hampshire College, her M.Div from Harvard Divinity School, and, in 2013, her Ph.D. in religion and literature from Boston University. She has published scholarly articles on seventeenth-century religious poetry and liturgy. Regina lives in Arlington with her husband Chris, son Gregory, and daughter Cecily.






    At Grace Episcopal Church in Newton Corner, MA, we are blessed by the many wonderful traditions that weave a unique pattern of worship, pastoral care, fellowship, religious education, and social action. This tapestry of our common life reflects the textures of the past as well as newfound energy – which helps us to continue to grow in our life in Christ.

    If you are new to the parish, we hope you will feel welcome here to explore your own journey of faith. There are so many opportunities to feel a part of Grace Church: from singing in the Choir, to teaching Sunday School, to flipping (or just eating!) pancakes at our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, and everything in between.
