BBQ & Brews


St. Mary’s invites you to “BBQ & Brews ’23: Third Annual Gathering to Benefit Outreach” on Friday, October 27th at 6:30 p.m. After another successful event last year, St. Mary’s is excited to announce that we are bringing back BBQ & Brews! It’s a fun evening filled with fellowship, fire pits, good food, and great music outside in the back parking lot all for a wonderful cause! All funds raised at the event entirely support the Outreach Ministry and St. Mary’s Outreach Partners.

The past few years, St. Mary’s was fortunate to be able to provide around $55,000 in grants to seven local non-profits – CARITAS, CrossOver Healthcare Ministry, Education = Hope, Gateway Homes, Goochland Family YMCA, GoochlandCARES, Peter Paul Development Center, and St. Andrew’s School. This event is crucial for the ongoing work of sharing God’s love through service extending beyond Sunday at church into the greater Goochland and Richmond community.

We hope you will join us for this wonderful evening. Please see details below:
