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 350 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.   

The Diocese has suspended public worship through June 10, 2020.

“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

John 14:15-21

 

   

  

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3: 5-6

   

    

Be our light in the darkness, O Lord, and in your great mercy

defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the
love of your only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the hours
of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and
chances of this life may rest in your eternal changelessness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will
give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for
your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

 

O God, your unfailing providence sustains the world we live
in and the life we live: Watch over those, both night and day,
who work while others sleep, and grant that we may never
forget that our common life depends upon each other's toil;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

      

 O God, the strength of all who put their trust in you: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because in our weakness we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, that in keeping your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
