Recently, the Diocese of East Carolina provided updated guidance for public worship which makes it possible for churches of our size to reasonably hold its principle Sunday morning liturgies indoors. Fr. Tom, the wardens & vestry, and many of you have anticipated and carefully planned for this occasion for quite some time. Please read Fr. Tom's Pastoral Letter regarding a return to Sunday Morning worship indoors at St. Mary's by clicking this link! These liturgies are offered following the parameters outlined in, in accordance with Diocesan guidelines.  

As we enter into a new season of the pandemic, many restrictions are being lifted from our ways of gathering. Regarding wearing face coverings at St. Mary’s, the familiar Anglican phrase applies: All may, some should, none must. All are welcome to wear a face covering at any time. We acknowledge the CDC recommendation for all persons over age 2 who are not vaccinated to wear a face covering indoors when other people are present. Following the Governor’s most recent Executive Order and Bishop Skirving’s guidance, no one is required to wear a face covering at St. Mary’s. Recognizing that individuals will have varying comfort levels about gathering in public, please be mindful and respectful of one another. 

Sunday morning in-person worship is offered indoors at two different times, 8am and 9:30am.

The 8:00am service is Holy Eucharist, Rite 1, held in the All Saints' Chapel of St. Mary's.
