Covid-19 and the shelter in place orders have kept us from meeting in person since March 8th, 2020.  In response, St. Mary’s and its ministries are changing the way we give people the support and community they need.  Volunteers are making phone calls to check in on every member of the parish.  We have increased our online outreach through the website, blogging, email, and Facebook.  We are holding Sunday services and coffee hours via Zoom.  Christian Social Concerns and I-HELP both continue to assist the hungry.  The prayer shawl ministry and others have made masks which are being given away to slow the spread of the disease.  The Vestry, Youth Group, Spiritual Writing, Prayer Shawl, and other groups continue to meet via Zoom as well.

Kristine is sharing more reflections and some beautiful pictures in her wonderful blog.  Check out new and old posts at https://kristineajohnson0.wixsite.com/peripateticpreacher/blog
