Virginia: Holy Cross Korean finds temporary home at Truro Church

From ENS-

Church of the Holy Cross Korean will begin worshiping in the chapel at Truro Church in September,  a temporary move that will re-establish an Episcopal presence in Fairfax City.

“This is an exciting time for the members of Holy Cross Korean as they look to the future,” said the Rt. Rev. Susan E. Goff, bishop suffragan, who oversees the diocese’s Dayspring initiative. “The chapel at Truro will offer the congregation the space and flexibility it needs for worship and fellowship.” The initial agreement for Holy Cross’ use of the Truro space extends through the middle of next year.

The move to Truro will mark the end of Holy Cross Korean’s presence at St. Paul’s, Bailey’s Crossroads, in Falls Church, where the Korean congregation has been worshipping for 13 years.
“St. Paul’s and Holy Cross have forged strong ties and built meaningful relationships in their years sharing the same worship space,” said Goff. “Now, it’s time for Holy Cross to move to a new space, and I know that the congregation will be energized by this opportunity.”
