Welcome to Saint Mary's Episcopal Church

Saint Mary's Plans to Resume Public Worship Have Been Delayed

Although we had planned to resume public worship on October 18, the alarming rise in new and active COVID-19 cases means we will delay reopening the church until these numbers stabilize. 

To read more about how we plan to reopen and the guidelines we have adopted for how to do so as safely as possible, please click here.

Below is a video showing what that will look like. Or click here to see the video on YouTube.

And so, for the foreseeable future, worship will be continue to be offered online only. Directions may be found here.
