Newcomer Wine and Cheese Reception
Attention all newcomers to St. Mary's! You are invited to join the Vestry and Clergy for a wine and cheese reception on  Monday, September 23rd at 6:00 p.m.

Newcomer is loosely defined on purpose. If you have started coming to St. Mary's in the past six months or so, you're invited! Also, we'd love a few more of our long-time members to attend so that we have a nice mix of people!

Please RSVP by clicking  here   so that we know how many to plan for. When we get closer to the date, we will email everyone who has RSVP'd the address of the event (thanks to Fr. Sean for hosting this event at his condo downtown!).

Instructed Eucharist

One of the distinctive marks of the Anglo-Catholic tradition is its glorious liturgy. Our worship is beautiful and dignified but also complex and mysterious, filled with various ritual acts and gestures. In this “instructed Eucharist,” Fr. Charles and Fr. Sean will lead us in examining the theology behind the worship. Even cradle Episcopalians are not always sure why they do what they do during the service. This forum will provide us with an opportunity to walk through together the basic features of our central act of worship, the Holy Eucharist.

This Sunday , September 22nd after the 10:00 Mass

Fifth Sunday Potluck
Attention St. Mary's family,

This a reminder that next Sunday, September 29th is the fifth Sunday of the month and that means it's Potluck week for our Immaculate reception. This is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your culinary skills and share a favorite recipe of yours with everyone. 

All I ask is that whatever delicious dish you bring is that it is ready to serve. We will be happy to refrigerate it or warm it in the oven as needed.

I look forward to seeing you all next week for fun filled fellowship potluck.

Blessings,
Raja
