Updates regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus

    St. Mary's offers in-person Sunday morning worship of Holy Eucharist following the guidelines described in Fr. Tom's most recent Pastoral Letter (see below).

    IN-PERSON WORSHIP TIMES: 

    • 8:00am:  Holy Eucharist, Rite 1 in the All Saints' Chapel
    • 9:30am:  Holy Eucharist, Rite 2 in the main sanctuary 

    In addition to our in-person worship, an online liturgy is published weekly on our Facebook page (click here) and YouTube channel (click here).  Please "like" and subscribe to these platforms!

    Stay in touch with one another!  The most reliable source of contact information for members of St. Mary's is our online directory.  Click here to access it, feel free to update your own information if there has been a change, and send Lori Kelly, our Parish Administrator, an email if you have any questions.

    We continue to learn more every day about how to bring our community together in these times, to celebrate the Christian hope, support one another in our lives of faith, and point us all towards Jesus!
