Parish Liturgical Calendar
If you've been to one of our daily services, you may have noticed a mention of a saint you've never heard of. For example, at Mass this coming Saturday, we will commemorate Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Amelia Bloomer, Sojourner Truth, and Harriet Ross Tubman.

These minor commemorations are known as "lesser feasts." Christians have since ancient times honored men and women whose lives represent heroic commitment to Christ in some way ("saints"), and have specifically asked for their prayers on specific days of the year.

Using various authorized sources and within the confines of the rubrics and canons, St. Mary's has developed a local calendar for public worship and private devotional use. Check it out here !
Adult Forum: Anglo-Catholic Identity
What does it mean to be an Anglo-Catholic in the Episcopal Church? What are the historical and theological impacts of the Anglo-Catholic movement? How does this affect the ceremonial and ritualistic practices in the liturgy? How does it lead us to serve others in the world?

We will offer a two-part adult forum on Anglo Catholic Identity. Each segment will begin with two short lectures, continue with table discussion, and conclude with a panel discussion.

Please invite friends!

Sunday, July 28: 11:30-12:00

Attention St. Mary's Parishioners:
Join us for our 2nd annual Church Clean-Up Day. Last year was a big success and we had a great turnout. We will meet in the parish hall and choose a "chore" that will make our St. Mary shine on her big day. Dusting, polishing and clearing out the nooks and crannies just to name a few . Join us for fun and fellowship and coming together for a great cause. A lite lunch will be provided.

Please sign up with Raja so we can finalize the "to do list" and have a head count for lunch. He can be reached via email by clicking here .
Mary Day: Our Patronal Feast
On Sunday, August 18th we will celebrate a festive High Mass in honor of our Patroness the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

The choir will sing Antonio Lotti's Missa del primo tuono as the Mass setting. Also known as the “Missa Brevis in D”, this Mass setting was composed in the 1730's in the Prima pratica style which is reminiscent of earlier polyphony from the Renaissance era. You can listen to the Kyrie eleison here .


A festive reception will follow the service.

Mary Day is a great opportunity to invite friends!
