Ministry at St. Mary's Anglican Church goes far beyond the scope of several paid staff members. The success of the church is measured in part by the outstanding participation we have in the many ministries we support. We thank everyone who gives of their time in order that they flourish. If you would like to become a participant in any of these ministries we'd love to hear from you. Your gift of time is special and we are grateful for any amount you share with us.
