Chili Cooking: Saturday, October 25, 3:00-6:00pm
Chili Fundraiser: Sunday, October 26, before and after 11:00am service
It’s that time of year again for the one of the best combinations the world has ever seen… Chili and football!!! Each year during football season, the youth of St. Mary’s host a Chili Sale to benefit their annual missions trip. This year, we will be making our chili on Saturday, October 25, from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. While preparing our chili, we will have a few chili-inspired contests in order to crown a chili champion. I suggest you brush up on your culinary skills now and get into a hot sauce training program to see how much heat you can handle!
Come ready to get messy in the kitchen, and please bring $5 for a pizza dinner. All youth (middle and high school) are welcome and invited, and please feel free to bring friends! Our chili will be sold the following day, Sunday, October 26, before and after the 11:00am service. Please click the link below to sign up online and let us know if you’ll be cooking with us in the kitchen!

St. Mary’s annual All Saints’ Sunday Parade will be on Sunday, November 2, for children ages 3 through 2nd grade. All children in the Ages 3-4, Ages 5-6, and Grades 1-2 classes will need to be in their classrooms at 10:45am on Sunday, November 2, to put on their saints’ costumes that will be provided for them.
After getting into costume, children will then line up with their classes to go into New St. Mary’s and proceed down the aisle to a special song. Afterwards, they will return to their classrooms for their regular Sunday school schedule. If your child will not be able make it to Sunday school on October 26 when some portions of their costumes are prepared, please note that extra costume pieces will be available for the parade and your child can still participate while wearing a costume.

St. Mary’s annual All Saints’ Sunday Parade will have a special addition this year, as our children will process in costume while accompanied by a performance from the St. Andrew’s School Violin Choir. St. Andrew’s School transforms lives by providing quality, progressive education to children from families with limited financial resources through a full scholarship for every child. Their whole-child approach nurtures intellectual, creative, moral and spiritual growth, preparing students for success in school and in life.
St. Andrew’s School is supported in part by the outreach efforts of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. We are so glad that they will be able to share a special performance with us on All Saints Sunday, and we hope that you will join us for this special day of music and celebration. Also, our plate offering this Sunday will be received in support of St. Andrew’s School. Please prayerfully consider how you might give.
