Welcome to Saint Mary's Episcopal Church

Saint Mary's Has Resumed In-Person Worship

On Easter, April 4, Saint Mary's resumed in-person worship with measures in place to mitigate the risk of gathering as a group in an inside space. These measures include limited capacity; shorter services; no signing of hymns; the wearing of masks; a no contact policy; and doing all we can to maintain safe distancing before, during and after our worship. All of these -- and more -- may be read in Guidelines adopted in June, 2020.

We will continue to offer worship online for those who do not -- or should not -- want to meet inside. Starting April 11, Saint Mary's will offer worship on the following schedule:

Sunday, 9:00 am: Morning Prayer offered online (Holy Communion to be offered on the first Sunday of the month).

Sunday, 10:30 am: Morning Prayer offered in person (Holy Communion to be offered on the first Sunday of the month).

Wednesday, Noon: Noonday Prayer offered online

Bulletins and sign-in information for these services may be found here.

We will make adjustments to our procedures as the situation regarding COVID-19 continues to develop.

I welcome your questions, comments, concerns, and requests. Please contact me by email, gmeade@stmarysdyersburg.org; call me at the office, 731-285-3522; or reach me by call or text on my cell phone, 731-589-3370.

Praying with Icons

You are invited to observe Lent with our new five-week series, offered online on Sundays from 9:15 to 10:00, February 21 through March 21. Each week we'll consider one classic Russian icon, exploring how praying with icons can open our hearts and minds and spirits to understand more fully God's identify -- and our own.
