Prayers in the Weekly
Yep, the “What’s New?” section of the Weekly Email is being discontinued after this posting.
The “What’s New?” section was started when things changed frequently, when we had a different style of service each Sunday… sometimes it was Eucharist, sometimes adapted Morning Prayer, sometimes even a Zoom only Gospel Based Discipleship. Because of the constant changes, it was important to keep parishioners abreast of what worship would look like week to week. Now that The Rev. Lindsey Briggs is with us and will have Eucharist every week, things won’t change weekly.
Also, the Worship Team probably won’t meet until sometime in August so there will be nothing new on that front.
If there are changes in worship that the St Mary’s community needs to know about, you can be certain that you’ll find that information here in the Weekly Email.
Feedback is welcome!
Still thinking about giving the Worship Team input about your yearnings/longings around worship at St. Mary’s? It’s never too late to let us know what you’re thinking about. Click HERE to give feedback. Thanks!

- Masks covering the nose and mouth are still required indoors.
- 6’ physical (also known as “social”) distancing will not continue.
- Lay Leader or Officiant will continue to read important announcements from lectern, including those from the Weekly Email, from the basket at the back of sanctuary and from the chat. Individual parishioners go to floor mic to request prayers. Anti-bacterial wipes will be available to wipe the mic for those who wish to do so.
- Bread and wine will be distributed for communion. Wine will be served from the “pourable chalice”, so bring your small glasses or take a paper cup from an usher.
- Communion will take place at the center aisle, either standing or kneeling.
- Small processions are back.
- On Sundays when there is Eucharist, there will be a Gospel Procession to middle of center aisle, using either lapel or floor mic.
- Use Acolytes again (with parental permission) (Note: Penelope, Clare and Caroline are super excited to be able to acolyte again!)
- Singing with masks in place!
- Passing the peace with handshakes – yes, can do this. We need to respect that people have different comfort levels. Please check each person’s color dot and/or ask re their preference.
- RED • dot — maintain social distance (peace sign, air hug)
- YELLOW • dot — more comfortable coming closer (a wave, or a fist or elbow bump as a greeting)
- GREEN • dot — willing to be close and are potentially open to hugs
