THE STORY SO FAR

Saint Christopher’s is a multi-cultural, multi-racial congregation and identified as being a regionally focused church. It is named for Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, and the property is handicap accessible. Saint Christopher’s evolved from a mission organized by area Episcopalians in 1965 with the blessing of Bishop Duncan.

The first priest was Father Harold L. Batchelor, who was assigned in January 1966. In its initial years, the mission called several locations home. The final location was purchased from an orchid-grower in October 1968. The current Parish Hall was built by its members and served as its church for eight years. The congregation named the church for Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, because of their journey in finding a permanent location.
