From the Rector
Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Today, St. Mary’s celebrates its official consecration day. Though built in 1887, it was on this date in 1888 that Bishop Potter made it “official.” On this day, our church became a part of the Diocese of New York, the Episcopal Church, and God’s One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. For 133 years, our church has been blessed and set aside for the worship of Almighty God, and for the work of bringing about his kingdom. Through times of prosperity and great adversity the light of Christ has never been extinguished in this place.

Just stop for a minute to think about the history that has been lived and prayed through inside our walls— wars, economic depressions, pandemics. Kings and presidents have come and gone. Nations have risen and fallen. Indeed, our world would seem quite alien to someone from 1888.

The current state of things has caused us to have to be creative and to reevaluate the way we are church in Tuxedo. A page of history has turned, and we will be forever changed by it. With that forced change, though, comes a renewed sense of vigor and an excitement about what can be. There is a great sense of possibility in the air, and I pray that we will have the eyes to see and ears to hear where the Spirit will lead us in the future.

Our changeless God has set us in the midst of a constantly changing creation. Let us prove ourselves to be faithful and effective stewards by honoring our past, rising to the challenges of our day, and preparing for the next 133 years and beyond.
