A Community of Faith, Helping Our Neighbors and Celebrating God's Good News.
St. Mary's in the Mountains, located at 13 East Main Street in Wilmington, Vermont, is an Episcopal community which welcomes all to our communion. Whether you're a long-time resident of Deerfield Valley, a weekend or summer resident, or someone just visiting the area; whether you're a long-time communicant within the Episcopal faith, someone exploring different faith options, or just looking for a warm and peaceful place to rest, we invite you to join us for our service every Sunday at 10 a.m., and in our many other activities.
Regardless of who you may be, or where you may be on your path, you are most welcome at St. Mary's.
On Memorial Day, for all who made the ultimate sacrifice, and all who love them.
O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all people of this land share the benefits of true freedom, and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace, stengthen them in their trials and temptations, give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peoples of the earth for your glory, to serve you in freedom and in peace. Give to the people of our country a zeal for justice and the strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with your gracious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
