The Rt. Rev. Craig Loya was consecrated the X Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota on June 6, 2020.

Bishop Loya served as Dean of Trinity Cathedral in Omaha, Nebraska from 2013-2020, and was the Canon to the Ordinary in the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas from 2009-2013. He received his Master of Divinity from Yale University and a Diploma in Anglican Studies from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale in 2002. Joining Bishop Loya in Minnesota are his wife, Melissa, and their two children.

In the first two and a half years of his episcopate, Bishop Loya oversaw a diocese in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, pastored Minnesotans in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and the attendant uprising, unrest, and trauma, joined people of all faiths from all over the country to bear witness to the damage to God’s creation caused by the installation of Line 3 at the headwaters of the Mississippi River, has spoken out against the unjust treatment of refugees and migrants held in the Bishop Whipple federal building, has affirmed that diversity of all kinds, including gender diversity, is a reflection of a humanity created in God’s image, and has inspired many with his deeply faithful call to join God’s project of healing the whole world with love.

In 2015 we celebrated our church building’s 125th year.

All Are Welcome  Through the Red Door

On Saturday, November 8th, 2014 we gathered for the Blessing of the Completion of our  Leap of Faith Project to build an accessible Sidewalk Ramp and the accessible Red Door and entrance!

All Are Welcome!!!

Red Door of Welcome.  

More Photos of our celebration are on the Leap of Faith Album link

Thanks be to God and to all who have helped us achieve this goal and to the wonderful people who helped us dream, encouraged us on our journey and who found the Jasper stone that matches our 125 year old building.  

We gathered and celebrated the Litany of Blessing for the accessible entrance and were led into the sanctuary to the ringing of chimes, led by Cera Richards parishioner, David Sams long time friend and Bp Whipple Mission Deacon and members of our parish family and friends who came to be with us to enter the

We sang for joy and celebrated as we entered the sanctuary with a reception and good fellowship.
