 Orthodoxy in Kenya -Bishop Neofitos
Interested in supporting Bishop Neofitos in his work to build a building for a girls’ school or dig a well? Click here to make a donation via Venmo or our online giving site. Include a note that your donation is for “Bishop Neofitos.”

“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. 

About Missions & Outreach and Getting Connected

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.
