Who We Are

As the only Anglo-Catholic Parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, St. Bride's seeks to worship Almighty God in the 'beauty of holiness', while joyfully adhering to the Catholic Faith. We are a traditional Anglican parish, family sized, and love meeting new people. We are located in the Indian River section of Chesapeake, at the city lines of Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Chesapeake.
Military families will be comfortable with our Priest who was a Navy Chaplain.
