The Episcopal Church is a gathering of all kinds of people who put their trust in Jesus of Nazareth as Lord and Savior, who believe that God loves all people, and who want to share God’s love, peace, and forgiveness with everyone we encounter. We want to follow Jesus and his teachings in our daily lives
At St. Mary’s we are passionate about liturgy. It is planned with beauty, care, and creativity and is central to our spiritual nourishment. We cherish our Anglican tradition while looking for new ways to inspire. Our service schedule can be found here.
Our Main Sanctuary, with its cozy brick, high-beamed ceilings, intricately carved altar and majestic Jaeckel pipe organ, is an uplifting place to worship and celebrate the Good News.

We enter December and await the coming of the Christ Child. The only decoration in the church is the Advent Wreath with its purple and pink candles for the four Sundays of Advent. Then, we celebrate Jesus’ birth with a beautiful array of poinsettias and wreaths. Those blooms represent memorials and thank offerings from our parishioners. If you had a memorial or thank offering last year, you should have received a letter about participating again this year. Please return your request in the envelope provided.
• 8am Rite I Eucharist happens as usual.
• No Regular Children’s Formation at 9:30
• All Ages Worship Together at 10am
• The children are invited to join us in the back of the church prior to the service and process into church with us. They may sit on the floor in front of the altar with our adult leader for the first part of the service. They depart with the adult leader after the Gospel reading for an age-appropriate exploration of the day's Scriptures and prayers, returning to worship in time for communion. Nursery is also available for small children on All Y'all Sundays.
Attached are digital versions of the Bulletins for upcoming Services. Those with a Tablet or Reader may wish to bring a downloaded copy to the Service instead of requiring a paper leaflet.
