"For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me." Matthew 25:35-36
We are a Christ-centered community of compassion. We emphasize service to our wider community and our volunteers come from within but also beyond our parish. We welcome volunteers to help unload, set up, facilitate, and clean up our food pantry on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. We can always use more volunteers to process donations to our thrift shop on a flexible basis. Please contact us to learn more.
Children participate in every aspect of our worship and are especially welcome at our services. We have a quiet play space in the sanctuary, weekly lectionary-aligned children's activity bulletins, and Sunday School in the parish hall. Please reach out if your child would like to participate as an acolyte, usher, or reader.
Held every second and fourth Wednesday each month, the food pantry provides for 30 to 80 families. The Holy Innocents Food Pantry, supported by various funding sources, grants and donations from the community, provides from God’s bounty to over 300 residents of the local area. The Food Pantry has a thriving seasonal garden to help provide produce for our Food Pantry and parish family.

In a tradition begun by our West Point Cadets, our parish has committed to support the ministry at El Buen Pastor serving meals one Sunday a month to the poor and unhoused in our neighboring community.
Our parish is proud to host the West Point-Town of Highlands Scouts BSA Troop.
