Children's Formation: Change Is Coming

With Fall approaching and the school year starting, we enter our season of change. At St. Mary's we have been seeking to be faithful in keeping people safe, while still gathering together to worship. We are exploring in-person meetings. Going forward this September we are going to be offering in-person experiences for our children. Below you will find our very first gathering experiences. Some will take place at the church with families and others will take place at a near by park. All will be required to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Reservations will also be required.
