The Bishops in the 3 Virginia Dioceses, Maryland, and DC have Suspended ALL PUBLIC Worship through May [+]

Due to the rapidly spreading Coronavirus, our Bishop has directed that the Diocese of Virginia will suspend all PUBLIC worship at least throughMAY with a goal to protect the most vulnerable among us and to assist with slowing the spread of this Pandemic. The first time the Episcopal Church suspended public worship was 102 years ago in response to the rapidly spreading "Spanish Flu" of 1918. Practicing good sanitary procedures and physical "Social Distancing" were major contributors to slowing that virulent disease and will hopefully assist us now as well. Our church remains "open" for personal prayer Monday - Thursday from 10:35 am to 2:20 pm. Our Church Office also remains open for normal business at this time.
