Founded in 1860, Memorial Church has a long history as a sanctuary for faithful believers and a center of community for the neighborhood.


Memorial Episcopal Church is an urban church in the city of Baltimore and a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. We are a Jesus-Centered, Justice-Focused community. We seek to be a model parish for the 21st century, a place where all people can find a place for themselves in the Kingdom of God.

Over the past 30 years the parish has become a place of diverse theological viewpoints, where members take an inquiring approach to their faith. On Sunday mornings we have a choice of joining in worship in either a traditional or a contemporary service.

We describe ourselves as “A diverse community, worshiping God and serving people.” We try to live up to that vision every day, and we hope that you will think about joining us for worship or become involved in our community.

The Episcopal Church consists of 109 dioceses in the United States, Central America, and Asia.
