St. Mary's Response to Covid-19
For the safety and well being of our parishioners and local community, the church will be open at a limited capacity. However, in an effort to maintain a balanced spiritual life we are doing our best to offer online resources. Please see below for updates.
Services will be streamed during their normally scheduled times through Facebook live:
Please see below for the text for the upcoming services.
Virtual Candles, Prayers & Donation:
The Virtual Candles, Prayers & Donation form is a way for us to pray, light our candles, and make our weekly donation remotely. When you submit your candle and prayer request, someone in the church will light the candles for you, pray for the names you listed, and the clergy will also remember the names in the altar.

Helpful tips for attending Divine Liturgy from your home from Fr. Michael Sakran:

"It is really hard, and unreal, to participate in the Divine Liturgy by watching it on a device in your home. It’s easy to get distracted, to get up and get something, or to do several things at once. I urge you to resist these temptations as you watch.

Here are practical tips to get the most out of the live-streamed services:

• Before 10:00 a.m., place your device (phone, television, computer, tablet) on or near your icon corner; OR, surround your device with one or more icons.

• Turn off all possible distractions (phone, notifications, oven, alarms, etc.)

• Like you do before church, take care of all personal needs beforehand.

• Dress like you would for a regular Sunday Liturgy. (Casual clothes may encourage a casual, non-prayerful attitude.)

• Follow your regular pattern for maintaining the Eucharistic: fast, refrain from food, coffee, etc. until after the Liturgy.

• Sing/speak along with us, in whatever way you normally would do during the Liturgy.

• As you are able, stand, sit, and kneel as you normally would do during the Liturgy.

• Finally, resist the urge to offer any comments online until after the service is over.

In short, I encourage you to make these few hours a time of sincere devotion and worship."
