We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, and we respect and honor with gratitude the land itself, the legacy of the ancestors, and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

A Breakfast Program in Jamaica

From Principal Annette Steele  – “The Victoria Primary School Breakfast initiative was established five years ago to help in addressing the nutritional needs of some of the students. We had an increasing number of students getting sick in the mornings. Some experienced tummy aches, headaches and even to the extent where some would faint. We realized that most of these cases were as a result of students not having breakfast in the mornings for various reasons. Some students arrived at school very early because parents were unable to provide breakfast because of financial constraints that they were experiencing.”

“To date, these conditions still exist. However, we have seen a great reduction in the occurrence of illnesses, especially on days when breakfast is served. “

Since November, 2023, a  group of parishioners has come forward and are sending funds monthly through Western Union.  A week’s worth of breakfast costs $50.  The action has not helped feed children  but also acted an inspiration to teachers to keep up their work as well.

From Principal Annette Steele  “Their regular contributions have enabled us to expand the program. We are now able to add more to the menu and eventually feed more students Our students have benefitted greatly from their assistance and we want to express our sincere thanks and hope the partnership will continue as we ensure that the nutritional needs of our students are met.”
