"Opening Hearts and Minds to All"
The word Episcopal means "pertaining to Bishops," and refers to the way the church is organized into geographical dioceses containing many congregations, with bishops as their shared pastors and leaders. The Episcopal Church is a member of a worldwide association, or communion, known as the Anglican Communion. Together we join with our brothers and sisters all over the world in worshiping Jesus Christ in common prayer.
Commitment—We are committed to God in Jesus Christ, to one another, and to Jesus' mission to the world.
Care—We enjoy and care for one another at St. Mary's.
Compassion—We reach out in God's compassion to the world around us, including people from all backgrounds and cultures.
Celebration—We rejoice in God's love through worship, fellowship, and special events.
The purpose of St. Mary's Episcopal Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
Every weekend is a celebration at St. Mary's! We are glad to be in God's presence and with one another. We have two worship services each Sunday, each with its own style:
