St. Mary's & Coronavirus/COVID-19
Due to concerns about Covid, we are currently offering one Sunday Service at 9:30 AM.
Additionally, as we search for a new Priest, we will roughly alternate between Holy Eucharist, Rite II and a service of Morning Prayer.
Please check the schedule on our Home Page to see what type of service will be offered on a given Sunday. We are fortunate to have the
Rev. Margie Tuttle as our part-time Interim Priest during our Search.
In addition to our services in church, we will continue to LIVE STREAM all regular services.

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. We know the current situation is constantly evolving and will probably get much worse. Many of us may need to be quarantined due to the virus and/or have pre-existing medical conditions that make it unwise to go out to any public venue.
The good news is many local supermarkets are now offering grocery deliveries and encourage us to use that service. Some local pharmacies are also delivering prescriptions.
We want to help in any non-contact way we can and would like to hear from you. Given the situation facing our community, 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. We are here to help but want to do so in a safe and prudent way while we wait out this crisis.
Please stay safe, wash your hands, and remember to take a deep breath once in a while!
A Prayer from Father Alan
(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.
