We live our mission through worship, in which lay adults, children and youth participate alongside our clergy.  Traditional, life-giving Eucharistic liturgy and fine music are hallmarks of worship at our parish, and we have weekly services in both English and Spanish.  We create a joyful community with a harvest of fellowship activities and events for all ages.  We empower and serve others through vital ministries, particularly around feeding the hungry.  Please explore our website to get to know us or, better yet, come visit!

Musings from Mother Jenny 04.12.2024
For the solar eclipse this past Monday I just happened to be in Maine. Mind you, I am not an umbraphile, that is, a shadow lover, who plans months or years in advance to be at the perfect place to view the totality of a solar eclipse. Nonetheless, ...read more

I must say Grace Church wears Easter well! Moving through the fading light of Maundy Thursday to the somber dark of Good Friday, Holy Saturday and the beginning of the Easter Vigil made the arrival of Easter all the brighter. The altar, a few days ...read more

From the Associate Rector: May Your Death Be My Life
Good Friday. Today, we place ourselves with Mary, Mother of Jesus, and a few of the disciples at the foot of the cross. We fix our eyes on the One who was pierced, asking him to help us to enter into the mystery of his life and death. Today, our ...read more

A Message from Mother Jenny 03.22.2024
Five weeks ago, in the name of the Church, we were invited to the observance of a holy Lent. We’ve done so personally and corporately as Grace Church. Worship was penitential. Bible studies were attended and the gospel of Mark read. Confessions ...read more

It’s early morning in Richmond. I’m awake and count as the mantle clock chimes six times. Feeling rested enough, I rise quietly, make my way downstairs for coffee and step out into our backyard. Sunrise is an hour away and the faint glimmer of ...read more

The saga with my right index finger is telling. It goes this way. Three months ago, my arthritic finger developed a ganglion cyst. It wasn’t painful just unsightly. Attempts to doctor it myself failed plus it became painful. So off I go to Patient ...read more

Musings from Mother Jenny 03.01.2024
I’m someone who occasionally needs a reminder that God hasn’t forgotten me. Sometimes I’m diligent about looking for a sign, like when I’m walking on a beach searching for heart-shaped shells. At other times the signs just appear. Once ...read more

It was good for my soul last week to be on an airplane cruising at an altitude of 32,000 feet. Soaring heavenward, through bleak clouds and rain, when turbulence hit, all I could do was pray and trust the pilot to navigate us safely through the ...read more

From the Assistant Rector: The Great Litany
If you’ll bear with me, I’d like to put on my nerdy hat and share a bit of the history of the Great Litany. I love this liturgy deeply, and invite you to reflect on the meaning it has come or might come to hold for you. On Sunday, we will ...read more

Musings from Mother Jenny 02.09.2024
There were many years when Lent meant nothing to me. My church didn’t observe it so I didn’t know anything about it, except what my one and only Roman Catholic friend, Laura, told me. Then again, she had to cover her head in church, couldn’t ...read more
