About Holy Angels Church

Welcome to Holy Angels Parish!

If you are new to our parish or just visiting, we invite you to join us for our worship on Saturdays at 4:30pm or Sundays at 10:30am. Please introduce yourself to our ushers or pastor or deacon, and they will make the welcome more personal. If you join us on the Thrid Sunday of the month (exept June, July and August), please stay for our Hospitality Sunday and enjoy donuts, coffee and fellowship with other parishioners and visitors after Mass in the vestibule.

Our parish has roots in the 1st Catholic Mass celebrated in the English-speaking colonies on March 25, 1634 on St. Clement's Island, just down the road from the parish church. While many of our parishioners can trace their roots back to those original families from England, our parish has also been enriched through the years by visitors who liked the area so much they stayed!

History of Holy Angels Avenue MD

On March 25, 1634, over 140 European settlers arrived at St. Clements Island, within the jurisdiction of our parish, and Father Andrew White, S.J., celebrated the first recorded Catholic Mass in the original 13 English-speaking colonies for the Solemnity of the Annunciation.

Father Andrew White established a mission at White’s Neck within a few miles of Holy Angels Church. Edwin W. Beitzell, one of our late parishioners and a renowned local historian, found in the archives of Woodstock College of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus, a very old record book that contains a list of early Jesuit Missionaries in Maryland. On this list the following cryptic notation faded by time and barely decipherable is found: “Father White can in twice. Had a chappel at White’s Neck without a house.”

In 1770, we became a mission parish of the Sacred Heart Church with Mass celebrated in private homes. On October 2, 1904, the first Mass was held in the new Holy Angels chapel. Two years later, it was canonically established as a parish in the Archdiocese of Baltimore on October 2, 1906 – the Feast of the Guardian Angels. In 1962, the present Holy Angels Church was built on the east side of Route 242, across the road from the first chapel and school. By this time, the parish now belonged to the Archdiocese of Washington, and Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle, the Archbishop, dedicated the new church on September 9, 1962.   Edit
