Our Parish Ministries
We welcome you to learn about and consider joining some of our parish ministries. There are many great ways to get involved. Please do not hesitate to ask any of our Parish Clergy or Staff regarding these opportunities. We will be delighted to provide details.
The Parish Council is composed of faithful men and women who are dedicated Orthodox Christians and who sacrifice their time, talents, and resources for the Church. We represent the parish, as clergy and laity together, and seek to fulfill the mission ascribed to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, altar servers assist the higher clergy during services. They might carry the cross, candles or liturgical fans in processions and entrances.
Saint Mary's Altar Guild
The Altar Guild is a community of parish women for the physical care of the Altar and home needs of the parish rectory. In addition, the women gather periodically for Christian fellowship. The guild is open to all women of the parish.
Bible Study Group
Join us on alternating Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 7:45pm (see our calendar for exact dates) for a fun and interesting Orthodox Bible Study. Our group is open to all, and meets every other Wednesday. Until further notice the study will be hosted on the Zoom App (previously Bible Study met in our Church Hall).
The Meeting ID number and password were posted in the weekly bulletin and emailed to distribution. If you want to join and need help contact any of our staff. Learn More »
The Church Sunday School program fosters spiritual learning through age-appropriate lessons, which may include an introduction to church feasts, fasts and liturgical practices, prayers, Bible stories, crafts and projects, and liturgical songs. Learn More »
Music plays an integral role in the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church. Learn more about the mixed voice choir for Divine Liturgy or Carpatho-Russian plain chant for Vespers, Molebans, and Panahidas.
We believe that the Goal of Orthodox Christian Youth Ministry is the integration of each young person fully into the total life of the Church. We believe that Orthodox Christians must commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily. Worship, Witness, Service and Fellowship are the natural expressions of that commitment.
