From Jon Bliss
It sems to me that St. Paul and St. Francis are the head and the heart of Christianity. Paul is reason, and Francis is love. As seekers and believers, we can think our way into moral balance, following Paul; but it is only by living in love that we can keep our souls animated.
Old Parish Church is a family-oriented village congregation in the manner of rural New England community churches.* Guided by our caring and creative minister, the Rev. Jon Bliss, we are a group of seekers and believers committed to tolerance and dialogue. We worship together at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings in our beautiful building, which was constructed in the early 19th century. We gather at other times and locations to pursue our spiritual journey and engage in fellowship and outreach.
Old Parish Church attracts parishioners from Weston and surrounding towns – Andover, Belmont, Chester, Landgrove, Londonderry, Ludlow, Mt. Holly, Peru and Wallingford – along with visitors from near and far. Our members represent a wide variety of ages, interests and talents. Some were born in Vermont; others chose to make Vermont their home. Some are families with young children; others are single individuals or older families. Overall, we are a diverse, informal and welcoming congregation. Please visit when you get the chance.
*Affiliated with the United Methodist Church, we reflect a variety of denominational traditions.
