A Warm Welcome to Church of Our Saviour
“God is Love, and those who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”
(1 John 4:16)
Welcome to our parish website!
The Episcopal Church of Our Saviour in Milton MA is a small, vibrant, joyful community of faith. We consider ourselves to be welcoming, wonderfully unique, diverse, fun, casual, and committed to loving one another and living the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As Episcopalians, we enjoy the “via media,” the middle way, between catholicism and protestantism. This is evident in our love of scripture, tradition, sacrament, liturgy, and social justice. Whether you’re familiar with either of these religious traditions, or no religious tradition at all, you will certainly feel right at home here. Everyone … EVERYONE … is welcome to come and learn about the God who has revealed God’s Self as Love in Jesus Christ.
We celebrate Holy Eucharist at all of our Sunday services, as we believe that the Eucharist is central to our understanding of Jesus and what he came to be and do among us. Our prayer and worship is drawn from the Book of Common Prayer, a beautiful centuries-old book of worship that is based on scripture and ancient Christian tradition. We also worship God through song. We sing traditional hymns, gospel, and contemporary songs alike; interpreting the traditional beauty of Christianity for our own time and place in history.
At COS Milton children are welcomed and deeply cherished. And it’s perfectly ordinary when they act like children while they join the rest of us as we pray, sing, celebrate Eucharist, and share uplifting preaching. Most Sundays, a brief children’s homily is presented before the adult homily. When it is time to celebrate Eucharist, the congregation gathers together around God’s table (the altar) and we all join in praying parts of the Eucharistic prayer in unison.
The family of faith that gathers here is deeply committed to living the gospel by following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. We do this by loving and blessing God through our worship, loving and blessing one another through our fellowship, and loving and blessing others through works of charity and social justice. We are joyfully serious about working with God to transform ourselves and the world in which we live!
We believe that we are called to love, serve and welcome all people, even as we believe that all people are loved, served and welcomed by God in Jesus Christ.
That’s why we say that “Love lives here” … and we invite you to come and see!

“Whatever you do for the least of my brothers and sisters you do for me.”
~ Jesus Christ
Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
No hands but yours, no feet but yours;
Yours are the eyes through which
He looks with compassion on the world,
Yours are the feet with which
He goes about doing good,
And yours are the hands with which
He blesses all the world.
~ St. Teresa of Avila (1515 – 1582)
