Harriet Chapel,
  Catoctin Episcopal Parish 

Thurmont, MD

During the months of September-October our services will be at 9 a.m. under our big tent and smaller canopies. If it rains we will either meet in the church and/or parish hall with doors and windows open. The service can also be transmitted into cars in the parking lot for those who prefer to remain in their vehicles.

Please wear a mask, bring a chair and leave food and drink in your vehicle.

The service is posted on YouTube and Harriet Chapel’s Facebook page every Sunday Evening

On Sundays you can also  worship virtually

at the Cathedral of the Incarnation

with all our sisters and brothers from The Diocese of Maryland

A Message from Presiding Bishop Curry:

“In this time when we are all affected by the coronavirus, whether directly or indirectly, whether physically, biologically, psychologically, spiritually, and for many economically, it may be helpful to remember that we’re in this together.

Jesus came among us in the first place, to show us the way to be right and reconcile with the God who is the creator of us all, and right and reconciled with each other as children of this one God who has created us all, and therefore as sisters, brothers, and siblings, one of another. 

Jesus came to show us how to be in a relationship with God and in relationship with each other, came to show us how to live not simply as collections of individual self-interest, but how to live as the human family of God. That’s why he said love the Lord your God, love your neighbor as yourself. Because in that is hope for all of us to be the human family of God.

So look out for your neighbors, look out for each other. Look out for yourselves. Listen to those who have knowledge that can help to guide us medically and help to guide us socially. Do everything that we can to do this together, to respond to each other’s needs and to respond to our own needs.” ~ Bishop Curry
