It's a busy time in general, but especially for new Afghan arrivals.  We are committed to providing a Warm Welcome to these new neighbors and are asking for your help.  We are collecting new coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and warm socks for every size from toddler, child, teen, men, women, and maternity.  We also will accept gently used clean coats.

Sunday Night Suppers

St. Mary's and the Park Ridge Presbyterian Church are again collaborating to host this ministry of the Park Ridge Ministerial Association.

In light of recent recurrences of Covid-19, the steering committee made the decision to continue curbside servicefor the foreseeable future.  As we did last season, St. Mary's will provide one volunteer every other week to organize curbside service of a boxed meal provided by that week's sponsor group.
