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
