Message From Our Rector

"Finding a church home is challenging.  You want a place where you can be yourself, where you can bring your doubts, questions, and concerns, where you can be inspired and uplifted, and where you can find a greater purpose.  Hickory Neck Episcopal Church does that and so much more.  After you have taken some time to get to know us through our website, I hope you will come and meet us in person.  You are welcome here!"

The Reverend Jennifer Andrews-Weckerly
