A Message from Our Rector

Welcome to the web page for Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Russell Road in Alexandria, Virginia. It is my sincere hope that this on-line visit will provide you with a glimpse into the life and ministry of Emmanuel.  

Of course, there is no way to fully experience the true richness of any faith community except through Sunday morning worship, so please, in order to get a fuller impression of who we are, stop by anytime. All are welcome, and we mean it!

Please consider this your invitation! Our parish community prides itself on its commitment to worship and preaching, ministry to children, and outreach to the community and the world. We enjoy being with one another in the presence of God. We are also a diverse group. Emmanuel is made up of young families with children, retirees, singles, and teenagers. Some are life-long Episcopalians, others grew up in different faith traditions, and still others grew up without any church background at all. What we have in common is a desire to grow in our knowledge and love of God and to enter into an ever-deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.

We’re glad you have found us in cyberspace and I hope you will consider joining us on this continuing journey of life and faith. Again, welcome. Please know that there is always a place for you at Emmanuel Episcopal Church.
