Our Story: How Saint Gabriel's Came to Be
Saint Gabriel's Episcopal Church is a young church. The church was founded in 2003 as a 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.
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.
Due to an abundantly generous donation of land, St. Gabriel's will have over ten acres on which to build our future home. The land is located just east of Leesburg on the northeast corner of Battlefield Parkway and Fort Evans Road. We envision our future campus to include beautiful space for worship and community life, early childhood education offerings, adult day care, a teen center, and inspiring places of outdoor sanctuary. We see our land as evidence of God's promise for the bright future of St. Gabriel's.
Meanwhile, we are blessed to have wonderful Sunday worship at two locations: the Belmont Ridge Middle School for the English service and at Paxton Campus for the Spanish service. Christian formation and child care are provided at both services. Our sister churches in the area host us for weddings, funerals, adult formation programs, and office space. Members also open their homes for small group gatherings and fellowship events. 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 new people join St. Gabriel's." Come grow with us!
