You are invited to join us for our Sunday services which include the following in person and online services.
8:00 a.m. in-person Eucharist
9:00 a.m. Morning Prayer on Zoom
10:30 a.m. In-person Eucharist, which is also live-streamed on YouTube
During the month of August we will keep this schedule and live stream the 10:30 a.m. Eucharist on the following Sunday’s: August 2nd, 16th, and 30th. We hope to live stream the 10:30 a.m. service every Sunday, but in order to make that happen we need more help. We can teach people what to do in order to live stream from our sanctuary, and if you can help please contact me. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our committee who has been working to make our live-streamed services possible here at St. Mary’s: Bill Wayne, Amy Koegel, Doug Murphy, and Mike Choquette. Thank you all for your efforts and commitment to our parish.

Prayer Shawls Needed – Large or (very) Small
The chaplain at Stroger Hospital, Deacon Rose Cicero, is requesting prayer shawls for the patients and staff at the hospital where she serves. Prayer shawls need to be a minimum of 20"x 60", but she also has use for tiny squares, or circles, 3" to 5" square, suitable for a pocket or on a desk. If any of you have the knitting, crocheting, or even quilting skills and want to be part of the project, please contact Margaret Wood. Thank you!!
