Dear friends,

Welcome to St. Mary's Episcopal Church!

Father Michael SingerYou may be looking for a warm, caring church home or you may simply be “passing through,” hungry for God’s word and sacraments. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we hope that the love of Christ will be seen and felt in your encounter with the people of St. Mary's.

We are a diverse parish with all kinds of people, programs, and activities, and we believe our church to be a place that respects the holiness of worship and the integrity of your mind. There’s a place, purpose, and ministry for everyone who comes through our doors!

We hope this website will give you a sense of who we are and what have to offer in the service of Christ’s Kingdom. Please feel free to contact us directly and please come and join us on Sunday!

In Christ’s love,

The Rev'd A. Michael Singer, Rector
