About us

Love your neighbor as yourself.


Trinity is an active congregation located near the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Through our outreach programs, we share the love of God with our neighbors and community.

All are welcome. 

We are a diverse congregation worshipping in the Episcopal tradition. In this time of COVID-19, we continue to offer online formation for all ages.


Clergy staff and vestry support faith development through deep spiritual nourishment, and through our ministries which serve the Trinity community, Fredericksburg and beyond.  Programs such as Micah Ecumenical Ministries, which helps meet the needs of the homeless in our community, was founded at Trinity.


To put it quite simply, we invite you to come and see what's possible when people gather to express God's love for the world.

Our History


The original congregation of Trinity Episcopal Church began with thirty-six communicants. The Reverend Edmund C. Murdaugh was our first Rector.


The "original thirty-six" built what is now considered the "old" Trinity, located at the corner of Hanover and Prince Edward Streets. We had our first service on Christmas Day, 1881.


The doors of “new” Trinity, at its present location of William Street and College Avenue, opened for services in September. The altar, and many of the furnishings from the original Trinity, were incorporated into the new building.


The Jamison Hall addition was completed to provide additional classroom space.
