Daily Office
Time Change for the Daily Office: The times for Morning and Evening Prayer have changed. Morning Prayer begins at 8:30 AM and Evening Prayer begins at 5 PM, Monday through Saturday in St. Mary's Chapel. This change reflects an attempt to bring the daily office closer to the center of our life as a parish, at the beginning and end of the day's "Office Hours." While we recognize the new time will be difficult for some, we hope that it will enable a wider spectrum of the parish to participate as we join our voices in the Daily Prayer of the whole Church.

Thank You to Our Progressive Dinner Hosts!
A great time was had by all on Saturday night thanks to our generous hosts. New relationships were made, old relationships were strengthened. Thank you to all who attended.
