Message from The Reverend

The Rev. Dr. Ketlen A. Solak

Thank you for visiting the Brandywine Collaborative Ministries Website. We hope that you will gain a sense of the scope of the ministries of the three Episcopal Churches who function as equal partners in this new and innovative approach to ministry in the Diocese of Delaware.

The prayer of our congregations at Church of the Ascension, Calvary, and Grace is for God to guide us so that we may grow stronger in service to our community and share the love of Jesus Christ, our redeemer, steadfast companion, and chief partner in ministry.
We hope that you will consider coming in person for a visit at any one of our three churches to worship with us on a Sunday morning. You can find out more information about each church through the links provided at this site. It would be our privilege to welcome you.
