The Diocese of Virginia
Church of the Holy Comforter
Welcome to Holy Comforter!
Following Christ through Worship, Formation and Outreach
Welcome to Church of the Holy Comforter,
a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. We are a generous and spirited faith community that moves to an ancient
rhythm of worship, formation and outreach--a rhythm always made new, helping us to find deeper connection with others and
with the fullness of God's life in Christ. As people living, working, and raising families through the hectic pace of life
in Northern Virginia, Holy Comforter offers us space to go deeper, to nourish the heart and mind, and to connect with opportunities
to make the world a better place.
Be this sacred rhythm, ancient
yet ever new, we shape our lives, and keep our eyes on what happened in and through the remarkable life of Jesus--what he
said and did before he died, and what we believe he accomplished after his death. There are good reasons to believe, to give
one's heart to God's mission in the worked, and to deeply trust the One "whose light divides the day from the night and
turns the shadow of death into the morning"
may be in your journey, I invite you to explore the web site HolyComforter.com to learn more about Holy Comforter and that
you feel warmly welcomed as you do.
--The Rev. Richard A. Lord, Rector
