Who We Are

Who We Are
St. Mary’s Church, Dover Parish in the Diocese of Virginia, is a community of faith nestled in the countryside of Goochland County, just west of Richmond.  We come from many different backgrounds and many different places to worship God in one of the most peaceful settings one can imagine.

We welcome you to St. Mary’s! Since our 19th century beginnings as a mission church to local coal mining and farming families, we have taken a special interest in welcoming all who come through our doors. Whether we are worshiping in Little St. Mary’s, the original church that was consecrated in 1878, or New St. Mary’s, which was built in 1992 to meet the present and future needs of our continually growing congregation, we invite you to visit.

Come for a visit or join us as a new member of our congregation. If you want to know more about us, feel free to reach out to our clergy.
