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 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.

Sunday Morning at St. Mary's

Welcome to St. Mary’s! We would be delighted to have you join us at church anytime.

Presently, we worship in person at 10:15 A.M. on Sunday mornings. Masks are optional.. We are also currently livestreaming our Sunday service by clicking  here.

Our Sunday service follows an order of worship known as the liturgy. The service is rooted in historic forms and uses long cherished prayer language.  Our prayers and liturgies are taken from The Book of Common Prayer and from other sources approved for usage by the Episcopal Church.  The service includes readings from the Bible and a sermon (or homily) in which the preacher invites us to reflect on what the Scriptures mean for us today.
