Join Fr. Jason and fellow parishioners for Bible study – live and online – on Monday nights (except the weeks we have Parish Night), as we explore First Peter. We will explore how the Bible applies to our own lives and consider the theological, cultural, linguistic, historical, and social contexts of the Bible, in an easy-to-understand way. Our study will be from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Celebrate St. Nicholas’ Day (December 6) with us as we follow the example of the beloved Saint by helping those in need! Join us on Sunday, December 6, for our second 2020 Missions and Outreach Harvest Pack event. We’ll gather in the Great Hall at 12:30 p.m. to prepare 15,000 meals in two hours. We’ll pack food that is nut-free, gluten-free, vegan, and made with U.S.-sourced ingredients that are full of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and are easily digestible to meet the needs of people with different needs and food restrictions. Let’s again work together to fight the #1 health risk: hunger and food insecurity.
Sign up now and join the celebration!
As an effort to accommodate our large congregation during this time, we will be offering the Divine Liturgy on Saturdays as well as Sundays for the upcoming weeks. Please note that we request pre-registration for all attending Liturgy on either Saturday or Sunday.
Saturdays will begin with Orthros at 9:00 a.m. followed by Liturgy at 10:00 a.m.
The Sunday schedule remains the same as always, Orthros at 8:30 a.m. and Liturgy at 9:30 a.m. The Sunday Liturgy will be live-streamed on our Facebook page.
Please watch your e-mails for the weekly sign up to attend a Liturgy.
As our world continues to face uncertain and challenging times, we at St. Mary’s want our parishioners and friends to know that we are here for you. At the present time, and until further notice, the church, building, and office are open during weekday business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.). We invite all who find a need, to stop in, light a candle, and spend some time in God’s House, praying or simply spending a few quiet moments away from the news and the outside world. If you have questions or concerns, please give us a call, 612.825.9595.
In-person worship at St. Mary’s has resumed. Each week an e-mail with sign up links is sent to our parishioners to register to attend a weekend Liturgy.
The weekday liturgies and other services do not require pre-registration unless otherwise noted.
Even though we are returning to in-person worship, not all may feel comfortable worshiping in such a setting. So that all may stay a part of our community, we will continue to live-streaming the Sunday Liturgy on our Facebook page.
A number of services and features have been recorded and available on our YouTube page. We encourage everyone to subscribe! Videos of services, story time for young kids, and messages from the clergy are found there.
For those who wish to worship at home, we offer a number of resources on the Stay Connected page of our website.

5:00 PM / SATURDAY VESPERS
The word Vespers comes from the Greek word that means ‘in the evening,’ so this is the evening prayer service which thanks God for the day that is coming to a close and inaugurates the new day. Saturday night Great Vespers brings in the Lord’s Day and is therefore resurrectional in character.
8:30 AM / ORTHROS
The word Orthros, in Greek means 'sunrise' or 'dawn.' So the Orthros, or Matins Service is the sunrise worship service.
9:30 AM / DIVINE LITURGY
The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (c. 347-407), Archbishop of Constantinople, is the most prevalent of four ancient liturgies utilized by the early Church and still celebrated today.
