From the Rector
Dear Parishioners and Friends,

What a week! Just when we were getting a taste of spring, two back-to-back nor'easters have really shaken things up. The power outages and mountains of snow have really been a headache, but we are very thankful for the dedicated crews who have been working non-stop to set things right. Here at the rectory, we were "browned-out" most of Wednesday evening, but a good whack at a snow covered line by O&R lit us back up. Seriously, that is all it took!

The church, however, fared worse in the power department. There was no physical damage to the building, but a high-voltage line over the rectory driveway snapped, leaving the church and preschool with minimal power. As I write this, a utility worker sits in a van, guarding the live wire that is draped over the garage. We are hoping for a speedy repair, but are also mindful of the vastness of the storm damage. All services will go on, one way or another. As things get back to normal, please remain cautious if you venture out, and keep all the plow drivers and utility workers in your prayers.

Fr Rick
Lenten Learning for Adults
Lent will feature an Enquirer's class, with everything you always wanted to know about the Episcopal Church but were afraid to ask. Whether you are a cradle Episcopalian, brand new to the faith, or just curious about art and history, please join Fr. Rick in an exploration of all things Anglican. We will cover everything from the creeds to couture!
Easter Flowers and Music
Easter Altar
Two of the delights of Easter at St. Mary's are the lovely Easter lilies and the addition of a brass quartet to our wonderful choir, organ and piano. If you would like to participate in making all this happen and honor/remember someone on this great festive day, please make a donation as soon as possible by using the envelopes provided in the church or sending a check to St. Mary's (memo line: Easter flowers/music). Names of all those remembered/honored received by Monday, March 26, will appear in the Easter bulletins and the following Sunday as we enjoy the lilies for two weeks.
All are truly welcome at St. Mary's, which is located within the historic gates of Tuxedo Park and serves the entire Tuxedo community. Please tell the gatehouse you're going to St. Mary's, proceed thru the gates and we're on the right (plenty of parking available).
