ST. MARY’S WELCOMES YOU

We invite you to learn more about our Parish as we search for a new rector!

Great and Holy God, You look with favor on your servants and call us blessed.  Pour out your grace upon St. Mary’s church.

Open our doors to welcome you; open our minds to understand you, open our hearts to love you.

Raise up a Rector who will care for your people, equip us for our ministries, and bind us together in your love. Grant that we may walk with you in the Way of Love and reflect your goodness and light always.

This we pray in the promise of your Son, our savior Jesus Christ.

AMEN
