Christmas Services at St. Mary’s

We hope you join us in celebrating Christmas at St. Mary’s! Our current public health guidance is: We recommend, though do not require, that masks be worn for Sunday morning worship services. By ‘recommend’ we mean to take into account the fact that many of us (though not all for a variety of reasons) are fully vaccinated. Ultimately, we are following an ‘honor system’ where we try to do the best thing for each other in the spirit of Christian love.

4 p.m. Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols in New St. Mary’s – Masks are required (despite vaccination status) and Registration is required to attend. Register Here.

Sunday Morning Worship Services

St. Mary’s is so grateful to be worshipping indoors and in-person in Little St. Mary’s and New St. Mary’s on Sunday mornings. As of Sunday, September 12, we are returning to two services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Our current public health guidance is: We recommend, though do not require, that masks be worn for Sunday morning worship services. By ‘recommend’ we mean to take into account the fact that many of us (though not all for a variety of reasons) are fully vaccinated. Ultimately, we are following an ‘honor system’ where we try to do the best thing for each other in the spirit of Christian love.  For now, we will continue to receive Communion ‘in one kind’, but the ushers will no longer be offering to sanitize your hands beforehand.

We think you will find a warm, serene, welcoming service and congregation when you come. Children are encouraged to participate in the liturgies along with their parents and other adults members. We welcome children of all ages in the service. Nursery care is available for children newborn – age 4 in the Sunday School Building.

9:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist I in Little St. Mary’s

Sunday Morning Live Stream on Facebook

St. Mary’s is no longer offering a per-recorded virtual service. For now, we will offer a live stream at 9 a.m. on Sundays via St. Mary’s Facebook page. The video will be saved on St. Mary’s Facebook page for viewing later and posted later on St. Mary’s YouTube channel.

 

Wednesdays at Noon – Holy Eucharist with Prayers for Healing

Join us for the celebration of Holy Eucharist with Prayers for Healing at 12 noon each Wednesday in Little St. Mary’s. This service uses an abbreviated form of the liturgy and includes a brief homily. Following the communion of the people, prayers for healing are offered. The service is approximately a half an hour.
