A Welcome from our Rector

Grace Memorial is a lively, diverse, and growing parish located in Portland’s Sullivan Gulch neighborhood. Together, we worship God in song, in word, in symbol, and in service.

As inheritors of the living tradition given to us by The Episcopal Church and the wider Anglican Communion, we seek to nurture a “big tent” within which to explore faith: we are convinced that individuals with different philosophies, theologies, or politics can pray and work and follow Christ together. Our experience is that Jesus Christ is often found in unexpected people and unexpected places.

Who We Are

We recognize, celebrate, and give thanks for the many diverse gifts of God among us. We welcome persons of every race, language, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, national origin, immigration status, and economic level. We hold that discrimination is incompatible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We affirm all relationships founded on the principles of God’s love and justice.

Grace Memorial Episcopal Church, following in the way of Jesus, seeks to effect transformational change in individuals, in our Portland neighborhoods, and in other communities near and far. To do this we will engage our spiritual, human and financial resources in creative partnerships with people and organizations to further God’s work in the world.
