Welcome to the Church of St. Mary the Virgin’s Website

St. Mary the Virgin is a welcoming community of the Episcopal Church. We are located in the Walbrook Junction area of Baltimore City. Our purpose at St. Mary the Virgin is to worship God, teach and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and minister faithfully to God’s people and the community.


Please join us for our 2017 Lenten Services and Activities

February 26

  Saying Good-bye to “Alleluia” – Presentation by Sunday School

The Church has the custom of not speaking or singing the word “Alleluia” during Lent.  Alleluias are joyful proclamations, which we put away during the more contemplative season of Lent. Putting it away for Lent is like putting away a favorite toy for a while – to appreciate it better later.
