Missions & Outreach
Providing Support to Those in Need
St. Mary’s provides assistance to a wide variety of local, national, and global organizations involved in mission, community outreach, and faith support through both its Missions & Outreach Ministries group and the St. Mary’s chapter of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc. Support by both groups is provided through hands-on volunteering and financial donations.
These organizations bring to life our Parish’s Vision: Hear, Pray, Grow, Serve and Share
The Missions & Outreach group also provides guidance to newcomers who want to learn more about St. Mary’s and the Orthodox faith.
To get connected and find volunteer opportunities, stop by the Welcome & Information table in the Great Hall after Sunday Liturgy, or contact the office to be put in touch with Missions & Outreach.

“Share YourShelf” Weekly Program
Thank you St. Mary’s parishioners for your generous donations to our weekly food shelf collections.
The need is even greater now than ever as food insecurity in our community continues to skyrocket. You can bring bags of packaged or canned food to St. Mary’s during weekday business hours, or on Sunday mornings prior to the Divine Liturgy. We also have a collection box for monetary donations to help food shelves purchase needed food items.
Outreach Ministries Supported by St. Mary’s
Missions of many types are supported through works and financial donations. We support families in transition, individuals struggling with addiction, locations recovering from natural disasters, and food shelves -just to name a few.
