Welcome To Holy Apostles
To unite all in Christ through Word, Sacrament, and Service to Parish and Community. We are an ecumenical community chartered and supported by the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Richmond. Take some time to learn how Holy Apostles came into being following an after dinner conversation between Bishop Walter F. Sullivan of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Richmond and his friend, Bishop David S. Rose of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia in 1977.Read more
We are an intimate and close knit family who welcome like minded individuals to join us. While we pursue our unique ministry of ecumenism, we are ever-mindful, and observant of our respective traditions. Due to current constraints, we hold two services weekly with most families attending both. There is a nursery and Children's Liturgy to cater to younger members. We are grateful for the richness of our respective faith traditions and welcome Christians of all denominations to celebrate in Christ with us.Like us on Facebook
