Worship

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.

About the Episcopal Church

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

Christmas Flower Memorials

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. There are also forms and envelopes in the narthex and a form is attached below. All memorials and thank offerings must be returned to the church office by SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2018 in order to guarantee publication in the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day bulletins. If you have any questions, please contact Trish Morris at (847) 698-1014.
