9 AM: Holy Eucharist
Lemonade on the Lawn
Our summer gathering for refreshment following the service. All are invited!
At the Church of St. Mary the Virgin all who seek God are welcome at God's table. If you feel moved to do so, we invite you to join in receiving the Eucharist with us.
The Episcopal Church uses real wine. If you do not wish to consume the Wine, it is appropriate to receive only the Bread.
Rite I or Rite II/Enriching Our Worship: What is the difference?
The Rite I liturgy has more traditional language, no music, and is more contemplative in nature. Communion is shared with the traditional wafer.
The Rite II/Enriching Our Worship liturgy includes hymns, service music, the senior and/or junior choirs, and pre- and postludes. For Communion, this service uses a loaf of unleavened bread, prepared in rotation by various members of the Parish according to an historical recipe.
Children of all ages are welcome at our services, but for parents who want or need it, St. Mary’s also offers nursery care in the Parish House every Sunday for infants and pre-school-age children.
