Liturgical style and practice

Broad Church with classic music and liturgy.


Holy Communion is a church with 2 chapels. They are know as the Church of the Frescos, featuring original work of artist, Ben Long. This parish values integrating the arts into their spirituality, formation and service. They are good stewards of both church properties and their community. They are a small church with a "can do" attitude and they value mutual ministry between the laity and clergy. The wider region is a rural area with lots of new retirees. The university town of Boone is only 25 minutes away.


It is a rural area and the next priest would need to be comfortable being in that type of landscape.
