The Episcopal Church of the Holy Innocents 


The rectory, a precious gift from Mrs. Pharo in 1964, needs refurbishment, and our next big project is the replacement of the kitchen as we continue to get the house “ready for company” and good-to-go for another generation. 

We are planning to expand and renovate the Rectory Kitchen. The current kitchen in the Rectory is very small, confined and dated. 

An architect has prepared a plan to remove a wall and create an open concept living area that families are looking for today. 

We believe that this improvement will make Holy Innocents even more attractive to candidates to be our rector. 

Some of the cabinets have already been donated and the additional estimated costs are $30,500. If you can do so, please give some thought to making a legacy donation to an effort that will meaningfully influence the future of our parish. We hope to begin the renovations late this Fall. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact

A new heating and air conditioning system was recently installed in the rectory. The existing aging forced air system was entirely housed in the attic and had been inefficient and uncomfortable in the winter. A modern gas hot water baseboard system was installed that also provides on-demand hot water for bathing, eliminating the need for a separate hot water heater.

This improvement was paid for using capital improvement funds accumulated over time in anticipation of these expenses. We anticipate recouping some of the cost over time through utility savings.
