One More Listening Session - Sign Up Now
Fr. Charles and the Vestry invite all members of St. Mary's to share their ideas, hopes, and concerns at our last listening session.

  1. What do you value most at St. Mary's? This could include details about worship, music, adult formation, outreach, etc.
  2. In what areas do we need to improve?
  3. What sort of changes would you not want to see?
  4. Our average Sunday attendance (ASA) increased from 60 in 2017 to 79 in 2018, a 32% increase. Where do you envision our ASA in 3 years? 5 years? What do we need to do to get there?
  5. Imagine St. Mary's Church 5 years from now, when worship, music, adult formation, outreach, etc. is just the way you want it do be, what would that look like to you?

Your feedback is very important. Please sign up for our last session on Monday, May 20th by clicking here .

Compline is a brief yet ancient prayer service filled with darkness, candlelight, chanting, and incense. It is the final prayer service of the day in the Church's ancient prayer cycle that marks the hours of the day.

Songflower Chorale
Songflower Chorale Spring 2019 Concert

Date: Sunday May 12, 2019 at 3:00pm
Yes, it's Mothers’ Day. Bring your Mom!

Location: Historic St. Mary’s Episcopal Church
1307 Holmes St
Kansas City Missouri 64114

The flowering of music we know as Renaissance Madrigals is notable for several new features. They were the first major musical genre not to be connected by any strings to the Church. Indeed, these compact songs of love, nature, worldly adventures, social commentary, and play were the first important body of music that could be called “popular”— the ancestors of Romantic Lieder, modern commercial music, and the widely-known songs which became the grist for the music we know as jazz. 

In this program, well-loved English madrigals are brought into contact with some of their counterparts from the world of jazz, from the swinging ballroom tunes of Count Basie and Duke Ellington to the brilliance of Charlie Parker and the trenchant commentary of Charles Mingus. We will hear vocal and choral jazz as well as instrumental, backed by some of Kansas City’s most outstanding musicians.
