In the early 1900s, St. Mary’s Memorial Church was founded as a mission of the Diocese of Virginia and became part of Clarke Parish. The Church was consecrated in 1907. There are now two congregations making up Clarke Parish: Grace Church and St. Mary’s Memorial Church, both of which are located in downtown Berryville and within eyesight of each other. The mother church, Wickliffe, is maintained by the Trustees of Grace Church and a special worship service and picnic luncheon is held there annually on the second Sunday of August. Grace and St. Mary’s have shared a minister, provided Sunday School jointly, and operated as Sister Churches since the 1960s.
