Bastrop: Calvary Episcopal Church

Calvary Episcopal Church was organized in 1869 by Alexander Gregg, the first Episcopal Bishop of Texas. The local Methodist church was used one Sunday each month for services. When the Reverend John Phillips, a Methodist minister, left his denomination to become the first Rector of Calvary, it caused dissension between the two congregations, and the Episcopal Church was denied further use of the building.  The present church was constructed in 1883. In 1997, the needs of the growing congregation led to expansion of the church.
