Saint Mary's Weekly News
From June 19 through September 4, our Sunday gatherings will be:
- 8:00 AM: Contemplative Eucharist
- 9:30 AM: Choral Eucharist with hymns
Mass on the Grass: Wednesdays at 6pm
Still outdoors, still casual, and still with the Holy Eucharist. It will start at 6 pm and last about 30 mins.
We'll meet in the Saint Mary's Gardens. If you can bring a lawn chair with you, that's terrific; if not, a blanket will work just as well.
In a response to many people voicing their anguish during these turbulent times, we are offering a daily reflection of comfort. We will be emailing a poem, scripture, or inspiration to help lighten your sorrow, and for those who seek a direction and compass for your prayers. Please know that you are not alone. People without email may pick up a weekly copy of the offerings from the parish office.
These emails will come automatically for a week, but you must let the parish office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-3366) know if you wish to continue to receive these messages of hope, by simply replying YES to the email or contacting the office.
