A lovely sanctuary in the heart of the city.... Love the ambience and the music. Two services on Sundays... And a great adult forum with topics that range from exploring the Gospel to exploring art and music with experts from nearby cultural institutions such as the Peabody Conservatory of Music and the Walter's Art Museum. Children welcome in services, but the is a special children's service during part of the main 9:00 service. Child care for the youngest during services and education hour.

By the way the church has a truly historic past and its old cemetery near the U Maryland hospital is like a walking who's who tour of early 19th century Baltimore... Revolutionary War figures, War of 1812 folks as well. It is not generally open to the public, but if you are interested and phone ahead, you might be able to take a look.

Do check the church website... The church building will be closed this summer (2013) to do a massive interior paint job (exciting to see how this old beauty look when it is is finished.). While the church is being painted, one service will be held at 10 am in the nearby Tremont Grand.

I liked everything about this church. Music wonderful; old church beautiful and fascinating; sermon interesting and short. You don't have to be Episcopalian to love this church: all welcome.

I stumbled on this gem last Easter. The music was amazing - and they do the sing-a-long Hallelujah Chorus to end the service.

I had a pleasant tour through the church. If you plan a day of sight seeing, I would include this as part of the tour. I would not make a special trip alone to go see the church. It is interesting and historical.

Thank Liz H
