Who We Are
The Episcopal Church in Delaware welcomes you to the A. Felix duPont Memorial House! For over sixty years and under the guidance of six bishops, Memorial House has provided a Ministry of Hospitality to the people of the Diocese and beyond. Memorial House is a place for all seasons, people, ages and faiths.
In 1952, Mrs. A. Felix duPont gifted to the diocese the summer home that she and her late husband occupied in Rehoboth Beach. In the early years, it was used as a summer vacation destination for our clergy and their families. Today, we welcome conference groups September through June and families and individuals during the summer.
Nestled among the pines, just two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and backing to Lake Gerar, Memorial House is sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the busy resort town of Rehoboth Beach. Its spacious rooms beckon you to stay. Meals are served to meet your needs. Guests appreciate the private chapel where they can enjoy quiet moments alone or join in group worship.
