Religion and Politics on Madison Avenue

September 29, 2014

“More Americans Back a Voice for Religion in Politics” proclaimed the headline of a recent article in the Wall Street Journal.

Today at Incarnation

Rector’s Welcome

The Church of the Incarnation is a diverse Episcopal parish located in the heart of Manhattan near the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, and the Morgan Library.

Our congregation reflects the revived Murray Hill neighborhood that is increasingly popular with young professionals. At the same time, members commute to church from every part of Manhattan, as well as from the other boroughs, Westchester and Dutchess counties, and urban and rural areas of New Jersey.

Worship in traditional and contemporary forms (perhaps the most wide-ranging set of options in the city), intellectual exploration, and practical application of Christian principles characterize our parish.

The Incarnation family invites you to experience the warmth and welcome of our community. Come visit our national landmark building and experience the living faith that has sustained our community for over 150 years.

We look forward to welcoming you to Incarnation in person.
– The Rev. J. Douglas Ousley, Rector
