Welcome to St. Mary's Whitechapel
Located in historic Lancaster County, Virginia on Virginia's Northern Neck, St. Mary's Whitechapel was constructed in 1669 as a place of worship and a colonial center. We invite you to join us for worship in a space that has welcomed parishioners for over 300 years. The natural beauty of our grounds, the reverence of our historic cemetery and charm of our colonial sanctuary combine to form a truly special place of worship. Join us for worship every Sunday morning at 11:15 a.m.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. ~ Colossians 3: 12-17 (NIV)
Interim rector Rev. Dr. Ronald Okrasinski
