Outreach

 

Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers,

you have done it to me. Matthew 25:40

 

St. Mary's is always expoloring ways in which it can increase its outreach to the community.   It is a top priority among the leadership and congregation. 

In addition to the outreach commitments as described within, we respond to immediate needs as they arise.

 

  • St. Mary’s took the lead during the destruction that took place after Hurricane Isabel by offering the use of the Parish Hall as a shelter.

  • After the Virginia Tech shooting occurred, we invited the community, people of all denominations to join us in an afternoon prayer service.

  • When a local business man died in a tragic accident, the grounds of St. Mary’s were lit with candles from town folks who might not have otherwise thought to pray.
