Serving God's People for over 130 years! 


"A truly vibrant and transformative worship experience."

Welcome to Atonement

Welcome to the Church of the Atonement, an Episcopal church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. For 130 years, Atonement has been a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our Edgewater neighborhood and in the wider community. Today, we continue in that witness as an active, visionary, and inclusive Anglo-Catholic congregation that serves God through daily prayer and worship, the practice of lifelong Christian learning, and ministries of outreach and justice.

Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your walk of faith, you are most welcome here.

Your presence, your faith, your prayers, and your questions are wanted here. Your gifts and your energy are needed here. You are invited to come and see what God has in mind for you here.

A wonderful sign of renewal and return


In response to recent changes to city, state, and diocesan COVID guidelines, we are happy to announce that, beginning on Mon., Jun. 21, the following changes will go into effect at all in-person gatherings:


  • Attendance will no longer be limited for worship or social events.

  • Masks will no longer be required for vaccinated persons. Masks are still strongly recommended for all non-vaccinated persons.

  • Social distancing will no longer be enforced for vaccinated persons. Non-vaccinated persons are still encouraged to keep six feet of social distancing.

  • Sign-in for Mass or other in-person gatherings will no longer be required. 

  • Singing will be allowed—no, encouraged!—by all.


In essence, this means that worship at Atonement is going to begin to look more like it did before the pandemic. The one exception to this will be that we will still refrain from using the chalice, as is required by our newest diocesan guidance. We will once again be able to sing, kneel at the altar rail, receive laying on of hands and anointing, and maybe even hug at the peace


Virtual Worship.  We will continue to live-stream our 11:00 Sunday Mass on YouTube for those who would rather join us online. Dailiy morning prayer and Tuesday evening prayers services are still broadcast on Facebook and Zoom.
