Welcome to St. Mary's Whitechapel and Trinity Episcopal Churches

 Sunday,  September 24

Holy Eucharist - Trinity at 9:30 a.m. 

Holy Eucharist - St. Mary's at 11:15 a.m.


 St. Mary's Whitechapel was constructed in 1669 as a place of worship and a colonial center. Located in Lancaster County, Virginia, on Virginia's Northern Neck, it is near the current village of Lively.  We invite you to join us for worship in a space that has welcomed parishioners for over 350 years. The natural beauty of our grounds, the reverence of our historic cemetery, the opportunity for personal reflection at the labyrinth, and the charm of the colonial sanctuary combine to form a truly special place for worship and meditation.

 Located in Lancaster village, Trinity Episcopal Church was founded in 1884. Trinity is a warm and hospitable community  dedicated to welcoming folks of all ages. Our worship is liturgical, inviting and informal.  Holy Eucharist is observed on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. 

Our history is rooted in ministry to children and families. Children and their accompanying voices (also dogs!) are always welcome at Trinity.  Whether you are single or in a family, we would love to have you visit us any Sunday, and all are welcome at coffee hour after the service. Come join us, the little church with a big heart.
