Fall Worship Schedule
As we enter September, our common life at St. Mary’s continues to evolve as we prepare for another program year. Starting Sunday, September 19, we will expand to two in-person worship services, one at 9:00 a.m. and another 11:00 a.m.
The 9:00 a.m. Outdoor Courtyard Eucharist Service will be family oriented, interactive and will include classic hymns and music offered by the children’s and youth choirs. The 9:00 a.m. service will conclude 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 in the courtyard to discuss and explore the rich message of the day’s Gospel and other topics of interest.. Chairs will be provided and pre-set.
The 11:00 a.m. Eucharist service with parish choir will be held inside the church and will closely resemble our “Simple Summer” indoor service. The 11:00 a.m. service will be live streamed on St. Mary’s website and Facebook page and may be accessed later in the day or week.
No reservations are needed to attend either service. Child care will be offered during both services. Look for more detailed information about Sunday school on our website and other communications.
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.
The Holy Spirit continues to guide and inspire us as we maneuver through the months ahead. Our continuing journey is in the hands of God, and we trust that divine guidance will nurture and sustain our life together.
