- This Week at St. Mary's
Come join us
for a joyful and faith-filled
experience of community!
Daylight Savings ends this weekend, please move your clocksone hour back on Saturday night,November 1st, before you go to sleep (e.g., at 9:00 p.m., change your clocks to 8:00 p.m.)Otherwise, you will be an hour early to church on Sunday!
The phrase "Spring forward, fall back" helps people remember how Daylight Saving Time affects their clocks. At 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March, we set our clocks forward one hour ahead of standard time ("spring forward"). We "fall back" at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November by setting our clocks back one hour and thus returning to standard time.
The preacher for this Sunday, November 2 , will be Rev. Michael Burke.

A service in celebration of her life will be held at St. Mary's on Friday, November 14 at 7:00 pm. Please save the date and make plans to honor this wonderful woman of faith.
This Sunday we celebrate All Saints Day and our Stewardship in gathering with a Pancake Breakfast during the education hour. Some of our Sunday School classes plan not to meet to encourage kids to join their families in pancakes. Check in with your child's Sunday School teachers in the morning.In honor of All Saints Day during Children's Chapel Robbin LaVine will be sharing the story of Rev. David Salmon, a saint within the Alaskan Episcopal community.
