Services at St. Mary's
We offer 2 weekly Sunday services:
Holy Eucharist Rite I at 8 AM
Holy Eucharist Rite II with music at 10 AM
We will also continue to LIVE STREAM this service for those who prefer or need to listen from home.
Wednesday evenings at 7 PM in the Sanctuary: Contemplative Prayer
Each week we gather to practice this ancient form of Christian devotion, opening ourselves to the presence of God through silent meditation. We close by praying Compline together. No prior experience necessary; seekers and beginners are especially welcome!
Thursday mornings, starting at 10 AM, in the Parish Hall Library: Morning Prayer and Lectionary Lunch
We offer Morning Prayer at 10 AM in the Parish Hall Library, followed by Lectionary Lunch at 10:30 AM, where Father Chris will lead a discussion of the Bible readings for the upcoming Sunday. There will be light refreshments, or you may bring your own brown bag lunch. Scripture readings are provided.
Join our weekly rhythm of prayer and study, food and fellowship. All are welcome!

Prayers for the Sick and Those in Need
We are keen to remember before the Lord those who are sick or suffering in our parish and beyond. To include a name, please email Laurane (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Holy Communion from the Reserved Sacrament is available upon request. An appointment can be set up for you to come to the church.
Good Saint Maryans
For those of you that might not know, the Good Saint Maryans have been working quietly behind the scenes to offer assistant to various members of our Parish during times of need. Some of us may need to be quarantined due to the Covid virus or have pre-existing medical conditions that make it unwise to go out to a public venue.
The good news is many local supermarkets offer grocery deliveries and encourage us to use that service. Some local pharmacies are also delivering prescriptions.
We want to help in any way we can and would like to hear from you. We need volunteers willing to make non-contact deliveries within the St. Mary's community and for other local organizations in need. For example, we partner with the Pleasantville Food Pantry, and they need help delivering food boxes to home-bound clients. Our goal is to help.
Please stay safe, wash your hands, and remember to take a deep breath once in a while!
A Prayer from Father Alan Dennis
(former Rector, retired)
God of the present moment,
God who in Jesus stills the storm
and soothes the frantic heart;
bring hope and courage to all
who wait or work in uncertainty.
Bring hope that you will make them the equal
of whatever lies ahead.
Bring them courage to endure what cannot be avoided,
for your will is health and wholeness;
you are God, and we need you.
This we pray in Christ our Lord.
