Saint Gabriel's Episcopal Church is a young church. The church was founded in 2002 as mission plant, the daughter church of St. James' Episcopal Church in historic Leesburg in order to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the new and growing communities in Loudoun County.
Who We Are
We welcome people of all different backgrounds; from life-long Christians to spiritual seekers. We value the diversity of our members and we continually seek to be a church that reflects the breadth of the community in which we live. A picture paints a thousand words, so click here to hear what our parishioners and friends have to say about who we are.
Where is St. Gabriel's?
At St. Gabriel's we worship at four different locations: on Sundays the English language service takes place at the Belmont Ridge Middle School at 10am (and virtually via Zoom and Facebook Live), the Spanish language service is at Saint James Episcopal Church in Leesburg at 3pm (and virtually via Facebook Live) - Sunday school for children and child care are provided at both services. We worship once a month at Ashby Ponds, a community of retirees living in Ashburn, on the third Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. During the summer months we worship outdoors at the Chapel in the Woods on land owned by the Diocese of Virginia.
The church is not a building, but the people gathered in faith! In response to the question, "When will you build the church?" we say, "We are building it each time we encounter people wherever we are."
