Welcome to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Colonial Beach, VA.  Thank you for visiting our website.  

We gather for worship on Sundays at 8 AM and 10:30 AM. The 8 AM service is a lively gathering for Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion) without music. Christian formation follows the service at 9:15 AM in our Parish Hall. The 10:30 AM service is Holy Eucharist with music, including hymns and sung portions of the service. Our small choir is large in dedication, enthusiasm, and talent. Congregants gather after the 10:30 service for coffee and fellowship.  We are eager to share our church with visitors and hope to have you join us one Sunday soon.

Although small, we are a vital church that takes its responsibility to love God and our neighbors quite seriously.  Browse through the website to see how we engage in the community with a Food Pantry, monthly Community Lunch, Thrift Shop, Nursing Home and Holiday Outreach, extension to the wider community through other’s use of our Parish Hall – to name a few ways in which we serve others and vow to be a beacon of hope in our community and beyond.
