  • 2019 Stewardship Campaign
    As we kick off our 2019 Stewardship Pledge Drive, we urge you to think and pray about your annual contributions to St. Mary’s. As always, we are asking you to make a financial commitment to St. Mary’s for the coming year. Your generosity allows our wonderful parish to fulfill its Christian Ministry year after year.

  • Sermon: More than a Religious Rule (September 30, 2018)
    We are to love as Christ loves. That is, we are to love even if it means giving up our lives. This is what it means to be a disciple of Christ.

  • Sermon: Losing Ourselves in Love (September 16, 2018)
    I like to speak about the transformation of the internal world for two reasons. First, so few do. And second because the only way to bring the light of Christ to the world is to become the light of Christ.

November 2018 Monthly Message from Fr. Antony

Orthodox spirituality centers on relationship. Beginning with the doctrine of the Holy Trinity our faith is imbued with an emphasis on personal connection with God and with one another. In a very real sense they are one and the same.   Read more »

Spiritual Quotes

  

How torturous is the 'churchly' language one must speak in church - the tone, style, habit. It is all artificial; there is a total absence of a simple human language. With what a sigh of relief one leaves this world of cassocks, and kissing and church gossip. As soon as one leaves, one sees: wet bare branches, fog which floats over fields, trees, homes. Sky. Early dusk. And it all tells an incredibly simple truth.

 

  - Fr. Alexander Schmemann

More than a Religious Rule

September 30, 2018 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
What makes the Golden Rule particularly Christian is when we hear the Lord’s unique emphasis. We are not only to be kind. We are to be kind as God is kind. We are not only to love. We are to love as Christ loves. That is, we are to love even if it means giving up our lives. This is what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Read more »
