First and foremost....

As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, & we believe in the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.  


The Episcopal Church has members in the United States and the territory of Puerto Rico; and also in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Venezuela, Curacao, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Taiwan, and the Virgin Islands.


  • We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.

  • The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity.

  • Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.

  • Both men and women, including those who are married, are eligible for ordination as deacons, priests, and bishops.

  • We believe in the amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.

  • Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our church.

  • Holy Communion may be received by all baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.

  • We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.

  • We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous.

  • Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced.

  • We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience.

  • We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.

  • All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.

James: Faith in Action Bible Study

Every Sunday at 9:00 am on Zoom

During June and July, St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Buffalo invites all to reflect on how our relationship with God leads to care and concern for others as we unpack the Letter of James. Each Wednesday as part of the “As Daylight Fades: An Evening Service of Light and Hope” at 7:00 pm a member of the clergy team will offer a reflection on a passage of James and the following Sunday at 9:00 am all are invited to participate in a Bible study to go more in depth with the same passage. Log-in information to these Zoom offerings is below.


This series is particularly relevant in the context of

COVID-19 for multiple reasons. The Letter of James:

  • helps clarify Christian identity by articulating what is most important – the royal law of love

  • provides assurance that God’s grace as expressed in God’s Word will outlast all the changes and chances we experience in this life

  • identifies key themes associated with Christian living, including patience, wisdom, the impact of what we say, and actively expressing our commitment to the human family


For the Bible study, participants are encouraged to order and use N.T. Wright’s For Everyone Bible Study Guide on James; however, this resource isn’t essential to participate in the Bible study. The guide can be ordered on-line via Christianbook.comAmazon or a website of your choice.


The sermon series will begin on June 3rd and the Bible study on June 7th – the focus text will be James 1:1-8. Dean Derrick sees this series and the conversations associated with it as an instrumental component to understanding God’s mission for the Body of Christ, especially in the context of COVID-19 and as we begin planning for a gradual return to in-person activities.
