Our mission is to create a space where people can explore, celebrate, and honor the richness of various faiths while fostering a deeper understanding and connection with one another. This ministry affirms and promotes the full participation of all persons in all our activities without regard to race, color, gender, physical or mental challenge, sexual orientation, sexual identity, age, socio-economic status, or national origin.

Discover the Beauty of Interfaith Worship

In our sanctuary, we bring together the wisdom and practices of different religions, creating a tapestry of spiritual exploration. Our inclusive services and interfaith approach can best be described as a mixture of Spiritualism, Folk Catholicism, nature worship, Paganism, and elements of Unitarian Universalism, where we seek to bridge divides and cultivate a sense of shared spirituality.

Events: Celebrating Together

While our church is not open to the public, we host various public events to provide opportunities for personal growth, learning, and spiritual renewal, from interactive workshops and discussion groups to guided meditations, shamanic journeys, prayer circles, and online events.

Our Pastor

Reverend Roy is an ordained minister – first through the Universal Life Church, then later reconfirmed by the Chapel of Hope and Light Church congregants. Baptized Catholic, he later explored and participated in the spirituality behind many faiths including Wiccanism, Buddhism, and the teachings of Unitarian Universalism. He is an Usui Reiki Master, Kundalini Reiki Master, Certified Aromatherapist, a trained Shamanic Practitioner, and a state board Certified Reflexologist (R.C.R.). He is also a practitioner of American folk magic. “The focus of everything I do comes from a place of healing, to help bring people to the place in their lives they want to be.”

I will always be thankful to Reverend Roy for being kind and caring. He has shown me the true meaning of community and support, and I will never forget the impact he has had on my family. When I was in the hospital and couldn't be with my kids, Reverend Roy lit candles for us that gave us more comfort than I could have imagined. - Connie 

As always, the quality of readings I receive are amazing. I truly appreciate the level of professionalism and honesty that is always provided by Roy. - Jackie

Reverend Roy performed my Blockbuster candle service to help with obstacles related to my job and income. In the week since, I have had a steady flow of work and new jobs coming in. I am extremely happy and grateful. - Goldie

When I was having a lot of problems in my life, Reverend Roy was very helpful and used some really powerful reiki on me. He has also done several candles for me. I am thankful to him and highly recommend his healing and his candle work. - Linden
