Parish Development


Members of Saint Mary’s are frequently asked, “What’s your ministry?” The assumption is that as we grow in our commitment to a Christ-like life, we will recognize that each of us is called to do something to serve Christ in his church, whether at Saint Mary’s or in the larger community.

The Parish Development Ministry strives to help all parishioners discover this calling in their lives.  We include the Newcomers Committee, the Communications Committee (responsible for the website and two newsletters), Strategic Planning, and the Nominating Committee (recommending candidates for Vestry and General Convention).  


In addition, we undertake such special projects as the new pictorial directory.  We welcome new members, especially newcomers to the church, because you can best tell us what newcomers need!
