If you are in the area, we hope that you will come by and visit us! We are located at the corner of Elm and West Main in Norwich.
At Emmanuel we work to try and "respect the dignity of every human being", following what Jesus taught in loving God and loving one another. I hope you'll take a moment and email me your comments and let me know if you will be visiting us or if you would like to get together for a chat. May all of our paths, indeed, our whole Earth, be illumined by the light of God in Christ!
The Very Rev. Charles G. Taylor
