committed to bringing the Chapel up to “code” and maintaining a
healthy building and grounds. There are occasional unexpected
issues with plumbing, electrical, air conditioning, and fallen trees,
for example. We have 11 full time and part time staff to run the
various programs, including revenue generating Churchyard and
Chapel Cabin Shop, Weddings & special events, and Carillon.
Non-revenue generating staff includes maintenance, office
manager, accountant, and organist.
Highly energetic congregation; very welcoming to visitors and
supportive to members. Washington Memorial Chapel is the jewel
of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.
