God's House of Prayer, Study and Hospitality


St. Hilary's Episcopal Church is a community of faith located in Hesperia, California. We welcome all who worship Jesus Christ, and who are looking for a closer walk with God.  


Our Presiding Bishop in the United States, The Most Reverend Michael B. Curry, sums up our mission and our outlook in the most simple fashion - "If it is not about love, it is not about God." We welcome all - and that means everyone - No Exceptions. We are not concerned with how you look, where you come from, how you identify, or your economic status. You will find a home with us filled with the love and acceptance that Jesus taught.


The Episcopal Church is a member province of the Worldwide Anglican Communion. We cooperate with them on universal matters of charity, and are deeply committed to meeting the needs of our local community here in Hesperia. It is not enough to simply pray for solutions, one must act to bring into being solutions.


Our offices are open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday every week from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. We encourage you to call with questions or to speak with our Priest-In-Charge, Rev. Jonathon Sy. Better yet, stop by on any Sunday and experience our community firsthand. You will be welcomed. May God's blessings be on you.

Sunday Services


 Dear Church Family,


I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how much I appreciate your support, prayers, and patience during this unprecedented time. When the pandemic hit, little did we realize how long this process would take! As you can imagine, the task of opening our church for services once again takes a lot more thought than closing things down for a while. Below, you will find the plan we will be implementing here at St. Hilary's. 


We do understand that several things will be different than before, but we do trust and pray any changes will be temporary. Our desire from the very beginning has been the health and safety of our members and attendees. This desire will continue to be the case as we move forward.


 There will be three services: 8 AM, 10 AM and 12 NOON. Members of the church were contacted to determine the preferred service time. Please see attachment for assigned service times.


 Holy distancing will be in place. Seats will be marked with directions regarding seating arrangement. There is a maximum of 34 congregants per service.


 There will be reserved seating for any visitors to our church.


 Seats will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each service.


 Bulletins will be ready for you on the seats. You may take it home or drop in a box in the Narthex. They are not to be used for the following services. Congregants are encouraged to use personal mobile devices.


 BCP and Hymnals have been removed from the church.


 Congregants will wear a face covering during the service. Does not apply to children under the age of two or those with a medical exemption


 Ushers will wear non latex gloves and face coverings.


 Ushers will conduct a health check at the entrance by checking temperatures of people entering ,then will spray sanitizer on hands of attendees.


 Attendees may pick a zip-lock with The Eucharist to personally consume during communion


 There will be no choir, bell choir, or congregational singing. Humming is encouraged. Prerecorded hymns will be played from the sound system.


 For the sign of peace, congregants will stay at their seat, and may bow in place.


 If a congregant uses the restrooms, they are asked to thoroughly wash hands. The restroom will be sanitized between services.


 There will be Live Streaming for the 10 AM service only.


 There will be no Coffee Hour


While this has been a tremendously challenging few months we have gone through, we know that Godis still great, and greatly to be praised!


Blessings to all,

Father Jonathan Sy and The Bishop’s Committee
