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.

Every 2 seconds someone in America needs blood. This year, one of those in need included Callen Tyson, a member of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church and student at our school. We have the chance to show Callen our support for him and those in similar situations by coordinating a blood drive through the American Red Cross in Callen’s honor. In giving your gift of life, you’ll be directly responsible for helping to save lives.
Our Callen Tyson Blood Drive will take place on Sunday, December 14, 8:00am-1:00pm. We need at least 45 individuals willing to donate their blood, so please prayerfully consider supporting this important cause.
Those interested in donating blood can schedule an appointment by going to www.redcrossblood.org and entering the sponsor code: St. Mary’s Episcopal. Please sign up as soon as possible!
