Indoor Worship at 9:00 a.m.
Our 9:00 a.m. service is family oriented, interactive, and include classic hymns and anthems offered by the children’s and youth choirs. During the service there is a brief children’s homily (short sermon) offered by clergy and parish members. The 9:00 a.m. service concludes with a faith formation component for both adults and children. K-6 Sunday School instruction will be offered during 30-minute classes while adults remain to discuss and explore the rich message of the day’s Gospel and other topics of interest. Child care for infants under 3 years old is available in our nursery.
We at St. Mary’s continue to be mindful of prioritizing the health and safety of our community and the ongoing challenges posed by the Delta and any future variants. Our Sunday in-person services and Sunday School classes will adhere to prevailing city, county and diocese health and safety protocols. Currently, these include masks indoors and suggested distancing. We also understand that you and your family may not be ready to return to in-person services and programs. If you’d like to discuss your decision, hesitations or simply can’t make up your mind, please reach out to any member of the clergy.
