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.
