Community Assistance


Once again, we are using the occasion of the Women’s Retreat to bless others through our generosity. In the fall we met 23 recently homeless folks, who now have their own apartments, and we’d like to help by providing them with the cleaning supplies and other sundry items they need to keep their new homes well cared for. Each woman attending the retreat is being asked to bring one empty laundry basket to church by Feb. 25th which we hope the parishioners of St. Mary’s will help fill. The baskets will be in one of the classrooms off the Beyer Auditorium.

Welcoming Refugees: Presentation at St. Mary's






On February 8 more than 70 people, both parishioners and visitors, attended a lively presentation about refugees and how to help  welcome them upon their arrival in the United States.

The discussion was led by Sue Horgan of Exodus World Service, a Christian advocacy group. Information about Exodus can be found here.
