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 have returned 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 YouTube channel. A number of services and features have been recorded and are available on the channel. 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.
