A warm, friendly and welcoming Parish.
My family and I celebrated mass at St. Wilfred's recently and we found it to be a warm, welcoming and family-friendly Parish. Our children (ages 7, 7, 8 and 10) not only enjoyed bible study and the Eucharist, they also insisted we return the following week for the St. Francis Blessing of the Animals, held in the beautiful Parish Garden.
We highly recommend St. Wilfred's and Father Doug!
A great family church with a sincere caring Priest. Every time I have visited St. Wilfred's Episcopal Church I have been sincerely welcomed by the clergy and members of the congregation of this very genuine church. The Priest, The Rev. Douglas Zimmerman, is a very energetic and enthusiastic leader and his sermons are moving and brilliantly given. I have noticed that over the past few months the children have begun to join more of the morning service on Sunday and this is a great way for families to unite in worship. I thoroughly recommend this church.
A wonderful friendly church.
My wife and I began attending St. Wilfred Episcopal Church only a few months ago. We have found it to be a wonderfully rewarding church, now led by a young pastor, The Rev Doug Zimmerman whose easy going manner and demonstrated interest in his faith and in his parishoners is easy to see every day. The members are a loving congregation and demonstrate their Christian beliefs in their daily lives. The Sunday services demonstrate inspired worship and the compassionate nature of this church and are followed by a great time of fellowship with coffee and snacks. Try St. Wilfred - there is much to love here.

St. Wilfreds Sarasota - Excellent.
Our son Paul Derbyshire and Grandaughter Emma were recently Babtized in a dual ceremony at St. Wilfreds. The ceremony by rev Doug Zimmerman was a big and beautiful event.
It was also great to attend the coffee and snack event after the morning service, which was attended by many of the congregation.
We found the congregation members to be very very friendly and hospitable, it was a real pleasure to be amongst them.
Rev. Zimmerman conducts his services in a very friendly and relaxed manner, and has a wonderful disposition.
Our Grandaughter Emma 19 months old, attends the pre school every weekday and is very happy to attend.
All in all, St, Wifreds is a wonderful Church and a credit to Sarasota.
Try it sometime, you will not be dissapointed.
Regards and Peace to all ........ Norm and Brenda Derbyshire.
