From our Interim Rector, the Reverend Jeanie Martinez-Jantz

Welcome to the community of  Olivet!  We are so glad that you have found us!  We are an open and inclusive community of faith where all are welcome.  We come from many different backgrounds and hometowns.  We come together to worship–-experiencing the presence of God-with-us on Sunday mornings.  We come together to help people outside our walls, giving our time and talents and treasure working for a kinder and more just world.  And we come to explore God together, supporting each other as we seek to know and be know by God.  We have a pretty big tent and a lot of friendly folks who are eager to meet you.

Our community has been in existence for about 160 years, but we are not the oldest church around.  We are, however,  part of the oldest Episcopal diocese in the United States: the Diocese of Virginia.  We are also part of the Episcopal Church of the United States, which is part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion.  So, while we are small, our roots are deep and our connections are wide. 

We invite you to worship with us, get to know us, and let us get to know you.
