Those who self-identify as a "Young Adult' are warmly invited to a Welcome Reception for our new Associate Rector, the Rev. Claire Dietrich Ranna. This will be a chance to meet Claire and her husband, Haamid. This will also mark the first gathering of the scholastic year for the Young Adult Group at St. Mary's so come with our ideas and dreams for the year ahead.
