As part of our outreach, two of our musical Parishioners (Holly & Joe Fortner) are visiting seniors and assisted living homes to offer musical programs of standards, oldies, and other tunes. If you know of others who could use such an uplift, please email Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org; he and Holly will be happy to talk about what they can do for you and those for whom you are.

Thank you to everyone who participates in our services. Our family comes together through your efforts and in our services.
We want to thank the Rev. Canon Nicholas Porter for seven remarkable years as our "Interim Pastor." St. Mary’s will miss his guidance, wisdom, humor, warmth, and friendship, and we pray that his future is filled with joy, peace, love, and purpose. Thank you, Nicholas.
Thank you John Terauds for all you've done for us, for your friendship and love, and for continuing to be part of our Parish (albeit remotely) over these months.
