Artist's Inspiration Hour | Tuesday's @ 6:30 p.m.
Do you have an artistic goal? Do you find it rather hard to stay focused during the very stressful time. Won’t you consider joining the St. Mary’s Artists’ working group, via Zoom. We will meet weekly on Tuesday’s at 7 PM CST. Come to discuss an ongoing project or proposed project for which you want feed back or encouragement. Please also join us if you are looking for ideas or inspiration. 
For questions, or more information, contact Sylvia Augustus at Click here to join.
Liturgy Nerds | Wednesday's @ 6:30 p.m.
This group traditionally meets at Bistro 303 each Wednesday after Evening Prayer for drinks and discussion. There is no official topic or agenda, but the group is known for liturgy geeks and theological chatter -- expect to hear about maniples, monstrances, and papal liturgical straws. During the lockdown we are meeting weekly via Zoom....BYOB.
