Epiphany Blessing of the Chalk
January 6, 2021 marked the Feast of the Epiphany, the manifestation of Christ to the peoples of the earth. Traditionally, chalk is blessed at this feast and given to the people for the blessing of their home. "Chalking the door,” as it is known, is seen as invoking Christ’s blessing not only on the physical house, but on the people who live there and those who visit. 

You are invited to pick up your 2020 giving statement along with blessed chalk during the week from 9:00-12:00, or before Mass any day. You may also schedule time to pick them, or requested that they be mailed to your home by emailing Raja Reed in the church office.
The Annual Meeting of St. Mary's Church will be held virtually on
Saturday, February 13th at 10:00 a.m. 
Mark your calendars!

Grab a cup of coffee and hop on your computer or phone as we break bread together. Even if you can't stay long, pop in and let us know how you are doing during this time of social distancing. We'd love to hear from you.

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 6:30 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.

303 in Exile | 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.
