Sunday Night Suppers

St. Mary's and the Park Ridge Presbyterian Church are again collaborating to host this ministry of the Park Ridge Ministerial Association.

In light of recent recurrences of Covid-19, the steering committee made the decision to continue curbside service until October 31; a possible return to indoor seating in the Presbyterian Church dining room will be considered in mid-October. As we did last season, St. Mary's will provide one volunteer every other week to organize curbside service of a boxed meal provided by that week's sponsor group.

Christmas Memorials and Thank Offerings

It is hard to say that things have returned to normal, but they are getting closer! Unlike last Christmas, we will be able to gather in the sanctuary for the joyous celebration of Christmas. And we will once again be beautifying the chancel with poinsettias!
If you would like to have a Memorial or Thank Offering this year, please click here and complete the linked form. Send it to the Altar Guild at St. Mary’s with your check made payable to St. Mary’s Church. You can also put it in the Offering Plate on the back table. To ensure publication in the Christmas bulletins, it must be received by December 19th. Any questions, contact Trish Morris at 847-269-2951.
