Thus you are no longer aliens in a foreign land, but fellow-citizens with God's people, members of God's household. You are built upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and Christ Jesus himself is the foundation-stone. In Him the whole building is bonded together and grows into the holy temple in the Lord. In Him you too are being built with all the rest into a spiritual dwelling for God.

Ephesians 2:19-22


The watering and maintenance of the Memorial Garden has been scheduled for the Season. If anything is seen that may require maintenance, before attempting to take care of it, please let the Memorial Garden Committee know, it may be something that is already scheduled. In order to keep the garden well maintained, it is requested that if you are planning to place flowers in the garden for a loved one, that you use planters that have been acquired for this purpose. The pots will hold a 4 1/2 " potted plant and are available in the Church Administrator's Office. Once the flowers are no longer blooming, kindly return the pot to the office. Thank you for helping us keep the gardens beautiful in memory of our friends and family.


Each year, St. Mary’s is fortunate to be able to acknowledge the devotion and hard work of some of our young members. Read more...

A Warm Welcome To Our New Choir Director

Mr. Patrick Marques

After the death of Saul, when David had returned from defeating the Amalekites, David remained two days in Ziklag. David intoned this lamentation over Saul and his son Jonathan. (He ordered that The Song of the Bow be taught to the people of Judah; it is written in the Book of Jashar.)... More

2 Samuel 1:1, 17-27

As you excel in everything-- in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our love for you-- so we want you to excel also in this generous undertaking.

I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others. For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich...More

2 Corinthians 8:7-15

When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered around him; and he was by the sea. Then one of the leaders of the synagogue named Jairus came and, when he saw him, fell at his feet and begged him repeatedly, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." He went with him.

And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, "If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well." Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, "Who touched my clothes?" And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, `Who touched me?'" He looked all around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease." ... More
