Ancient worship. Affirming Faith. Genuine love.
Dear St. Mary's family,

I miss you! I am praying for you, and am honored to offer the Mass on your behalf each day. It is so lovely to see and hear many of you each morning at Morning Prayer, and to pray together with dozens of you at Mass every day.

If you missed last Sunday's Mass, click here and fast forward to timestamp 14:30. Your rector is somewhat ashamed to admit that he used PowerPoint during the sermon. Next thing you know, I'll be asking the Vestry for the funds to install a fancy screen descending from the rood screen! Just kidding. They know better than to approve such a request.

Technology isn't always simple. If you are unable to join by video, you are warmly invited to join Morning Prayer by telephone. Simply call 1-929-436-2866 and input meeting ID 912 797 925#. We meet at 7:30 Monday-Saturday, and 8:00 on Sunday.

Most of the images in the newsletter today have hyperlinks behind them. If you want to be directed to the event, whether you're reading this from your phone or a computer, simply click on the image. Please extend a word of thanks to Lynda Hurt for her hard work on making this newsletter beautiful and effective.

Please do your best to stay connected with one another! And let me know if you want to chat.

Fr. Charles

Downtown Outreach Food Pantry

When so many non-essential food businesses have been temporarily closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Downtown Outreach is still operating in the neighborhood providing hunger-relief,distributing sacks of groceries and brown bag lunches for the community. Downtown Outreach is open the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month from 11am to 1pm.

If you would like to support Downtown Outreach, food donations are very much appreciated. Please designate them as Downtown Outreach Pantry and bring to St. Mary's. At this time, monetary donations are the best way to support this outreach. We use funds to buy those things most beneficial to the needs of our community.

Prayerfully consider a donation during this great time of need by clicking on the donate button below. Thank you and God Bless!
