A warm and welcoming community that made us feel at ease the moment we walked through the doors.

A smart, moving Easter homily. Love wins. Thanks much. A needed reminder.

TRAFFIC UPDATE: Access to our main drive from the westbound lane of University Avenue has been cut off due to road construction, and will likely stay that way through early summer. You can access St. Dunstan’s by driving past the church (westbound), turning left into the parking lot by the hardware store, turning around and coming back along University. You can still turn into our driveway from eastbound University Avenue.
We also have a gate that allows access to our parking lot from Countryside Lane, off of Old Middleton Road. Please drive slowly on Countryside Lane to respect our neighbors.

This Sunday at St. Dunstan's, we receive the Gospel of Jesus' appearance to the disciples as they huddled fearfully in a locked room. The Rev. Thomas McAlpine will preach and celebrate.
Our Sunday school classes will meet during the 10am service. And at 9am, all current and aspiring acolytes are invited to come learn the routine!

Palm and Passion Sunday, April 9, 8 and 10am: We begin our liturgy with a Palm Procession, recalling Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, then proceed to the reading of the Passion Gospel according to Mark. This is a solemn and powerful service, and our doorway into Holy Week.

This Sunday at St. Dunstan's... Worship at 8am and 10am. Birthdays and Anniversaries will be honored, and Healing Prayers will be given this Sunday, April 2, as is our custom on the first Sunday of the month.

Architects’ On-Site Design Process, Sunday, April 2: On April 2nd, the next part of our planning and design process with Engberg Anderson Architects will take place right under our roof here at St. Dunstan's! Beginning at 9AM that morning, and continuing into the early ...afternoon, architects from EA will set up shop in our building in the Meeting Room. They will be working on concept drawings and sketches for different ways in which the various ideas generated by all of you over the last several weeks can best be incorporated into our building - whether by renovating the space we have, or by looking at modest ways to expand it as needed. The process promises to be interesting, a bit messy, and a lot of fun! Bill and Mike, and members of your Discernment committee, hope you will take the time to stop by, see what they are working on, ask questions and share your comments on their work. The more input they get from the members of St. Dunstan's, the better their work will reflect our goals, dreams, and the mission of our parish. Make plans to allow time for a visit, either before leaving church, or by returning later in the day.

Rev. Miranda's sermon from March 12.

There’s so much I love in this Gospel story about Nicodemus, this man of wealth and status and learning who wondered if he was missing something, who snuck out to visit Jesus by night so as not to …

This Sunday at St. Dunstan's... our Gospel story tells of Jesus' conversation with a Samaritan woman, and the mysterious idea of "living water" that can quench our deepest thirsts. The Rev. Laura Norby will preach, and Father John Rasmus will celebrate. We worship at 8am (without music) and 10am (with music).
Our Sunday school classes will meet during the 10am service. The youngest class will hear the parable of the Pearl of Great Price, while the older children explore the "Living Water" gospel story.

Some words from our Bishop.

The Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee
March 13

An important message from Bishop Miller:

All Christians are called to take to heart Jesus’ teaching on Hebrew scripture, “‘You shall love the Lord your God wit...h all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:34–40, NRSV). It is with alarm and concern that I observe the rise of hate crimes and speech rendered against our interfaith neighbors in the Muslim, Jewish and other communities.

Noting in particular the multiple threats recently against the Jewish Community Center in Milwaukee, we should recall the resolution of the World Council of Churches in 1948, “to denounce anti-semitism, no matter what its origin, as absolutely irreconcilable with the profession and practice of the Christian faith. Antisemitism is sin against God and human life.”

I, therefore, call upon people and clergy of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee to stand with our interfaith neighbors who are concerned about their persons, property and place in American society. I strongly encourage our members and parishes to reach out to non-Christian congregations and interfaith organizations to strengthen the bonds of friendship and express our solidarity against hate in any form. I encourage action in the form of presence at rallies and press conferences, and assistance in cases where it is welcomed by our interfaith neighbors.

Our legacy as 21st Century Christians in America may well be measured by how we respond to this rise in hate. It is my prayer that we will be remembered as ones who, in the name of Jesus, took seriously the promise of our baptismal promise to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 305)

The Rt. Rev. Steven Miller
Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee
