Evensong on Dec. 4th at 7 PM

Do you sometimes feel the true meaning of Christmas is lost for many of us?  We get so busy planning our parties and buying gifts; we get caught up in the craziness and find we need time to settle down and pray.

Consider attending our annual Advent/Christmas Evensong with your family.   Please join us on Thursday evening, Dec. 4, 2014 at 7:00pm at SJN Church for a relaxing and prayerful evening of scripture, story, song, dance and drama as we celebrate the coming of the Christ Child.   The Adult Traditional and Contemporary Choirs will enhance the evening with beautiful song, while parish Lectors will read emotional stories to help us experience Mary and Joseph’s excitement and fear.  As we listen to the readings and the songs, we will feel what Mary and Joseph must have felt as we watch the dramatization of their roles in this wondrous miracle as portrayed by two young adults.  Liturgical Dance will accompany one of the songs.  Our Master of Ceremonies and clergy representative, Deacon Moore, will read sacred Scripture to tie the evening together and remind us of what Christmas is truly about:  bringing us back to Christ and living out the teachings of His word.   We hope you will bring your families for this hour-long evening of praise and wonder as we follow Mary and Joseph on their journey of enlightenment and wonder.

Latest news from the Environmental Stewardship Committe

St. Mary’s Parish was designated the first City of Annapolis “Sustainable Annapolis” house of worship earlier this year and our Pastor and Parish leadership accepted the award from the mayor in front of the Church.  It represents the completion of an exhaustive review and documentation of environmental practices in our Parish as set forth in the City’s Sustainable Annapolis Workbook.  The City’s workbook also has a self-certification part of the Workbook for individual households with great suggestions on environmental practices in your home and your yards.  Please consider going to the Workbook which is available on our Environmental Stewardship Committee webpage.

Pope Francis has emphasized care for the environment and we offer this prayer from the Pope’s namesake to encourage your environmental stewardship and ask that you consider joining the St. Mary’s Environmental Stewardship Committee.  Find out more by visiting our web page at: http://www.stmarysannapolis.org/environmentalstewardship    or emailing Gerald Winegrad, gwwabc@comcast.net.

A wonderful time was had by all!

Lane Closure on Duke of Gloucester Street

The City of Annapolis has issued the following advisory that will impact travel from St. Mary’s. “Following the intense rainfall event of August 12, 2014, a separation between the stone retaining wall at the foot of Duke of Gloucester Street was discovered.  The sidewalk was immediately closed.  After a preliminary investigation it was decided, as a precaution, to close the right hand travel lane at the foot of Duke of Gloucester Street to vehicular traffic in an effort to reduce both the loading and vibration on the retaining wall until further investigation can occur.  Until the lane can be reopened, motorists are urged to only use the last block of Duke of Gloucester Street to access Eastport and to use St. Mary Street to go downtown or to the Yacht Basin or the  Annapolis Yacht Club.” 

WANTED: Parents for the Family Club

St. Mary’s Parish is endeavoring to provide an opportunity for families to build a network of friendships within the church community by emphasizing the family as the focal point of a warm Christian environment. We do so with a series of spiritual, community, and social events throughout the year designed with the entire family in mind – as well as some for just moms and dads. It’s a way of helping today's busy families remain involved in parish life even as they juggle all of life’s other commitments.

The FAMILY CLUB makes an effort to sponsor at least one event every month. These events are open to families with children of all ages including grandparents and their grandchildren, and godparents and their godchildren. There is no “membership” in the traditional sense, only a keen desire to fully integrate parish and family life. That’s why every family is welcome and there is no minimum number of events to attend.

It’s our goal to meet the interests of every parish family by encouraging new ideas for programs and events. By doing so, we will remain true to our mission of responding to the spiritual and social needs of Catholic families in the greater Annapolis community.

For more information or to join, please contact Andrea Horning. arhorning@comcast.net
