Outdoor Worship Services on Sunday Mornings
St. Mary’s is continuing with an Outdoor Worship Service at 10 a.m. on Sundays. The services will be located in the west parking lot (on the opposite side of the campus from where we gathered last summer and fall). Registration for Sunday morning services opens each Wednesday at 1 p.m. and closes on Friday prior to Sunday. As many as 75 households can register for each service and a household can include 1-4 people (over the age of 2 years old; children 2 years and younger can squeeze in!).
As you may recall from outdoor worship this fall, we will need to continue to follow all health and safety protocols. Masks will be required, please bring your own chairs, there will be no communal singing yet, and communion will be shared in only one kind. But we will be together!
These services are weather permitting, so please join us in praying for good weather.
Sunday Morning Virtual Worship Services during COVID
St. Mary’s continues to offer Sunday Services as we stay connected even though we are obligated to stay apart. Each week, a pre-recorded worship video featuring different Clergy and lay leaders will consist of prayers, readings, a homily, and some music. On Sunday mornings, the worship video posts to St. Mary’s YouTube Channel at 8 a.m. and posts LIVE to St. Mary’s Facebook Page at 10 a.m.
Wednesday Noonday Prayer LIVE on Facebook
St. Mary’s continues to offer a Wednesday Noonday Prayer LIVE on St. Mary’s Facebook Page at 12 p.m. on Wednesdays. It is a brief, reflective service filled with prayers and a brief meditation. Please follow along with the service on page 103 of the Book of Common Prayer or visit BCPonline.org.

St. Mary’s is obligated to follow the guidance of the Bishop of the Diocese of Virginia. Please find the Bishop’s Guidance during this time on The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia’s website.
