St. Mary's Purpose is to pursue and recognize heaven on Earth through relationship with God and service to others and one another.
Welcome to our web site. We would be delighted to have you visit St. Mary's Episcopal Church.
You do not need to be a member of the congregation to participate in any of our weekly acitivites or study groups on spirituality, social justice, education, health, and fellowship. If you are interested in exploring membership please contact Father Patrick Skutch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-823-4126.
The Episcopal Church is a gathering of all kinds of people who put their trust in Jesus of Nazareth as Lord and Savior, who believe that God loves all people, and who want to share God’s love, peace, and forgiveness with everyone we encounter. We want to follow Jesus and his teachings in our daily lives
The last Sunday in May marks the end of our normal formation year and the beginning of our Summer Chapel. Sunday, May 27th there will be no Formation. Starting June 3rd children 6-10 years old can participate in our Summer Chapel. This will take place in Classroom 1 from 10am-10:30am throughout the summer.
The Nursery will be open at 9:30am for ages 5 and younger starting Sunday May 27th. We will move into Classroom 2 on the main floor of the church to have the children be in a climate controlled atmosphere. We are excited for our summer months and look forward to having fun.
Do You Love a Specific Hymn?
Are you wishing we would sing it one Sunday?
Write down your favorite hymn on the forms provided, and place it in the container in the Grauer Lounge.
Each week we’ll pick a hymn and use it in the liturgy.
We’ll also let you know we chose your hymn so you can make sure you’re here on that Sunday!
Contact Sarah Sipll at email@example.com with any questions, or find her at coffee hour!
Do you play an instrument?
Have you always wanted to sing a solo?
We are looking for parishioners of all ages to share their musical gifts as part of this summer’s liturgy.
Sign up to play/sing an offertory anthem, or even more!
Contact Sarah Sipll at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, or to reserve a Sunday!

As part of No Strangers at Home, we have installed a SPOTLIGHT board on the wall between the bell tower doors and the Grauer Lounge. We will be spotlighting different parishioners every few weeks so that we can all put names with faces. There will also be a little bio of each - the facts of which may or may not be the subject of a trivia game in the future! Be sure to stop and see our current SPOTLIGHT honorees: The Kreger Family. And get ready for your time in the SPOTLIGHT !
