With a large, complex parish with diverse interests, communication plays a vital role in ensuring that all members are kept informed about the activities and services of the parish, and that important good news and ministry information is shared with the larger Annapolis community.
St. Mary’s has several means of relaying information to its community members including:
- Publications such as The Moorings (for parishioners), the Fleur-de-Lis magazine (for alumni, parents, and friends of St. Mary’s Schools), and an Annual Report, and
- An interactive website that allows members to customize the information that they receive to suit their needs
Playing an active role in facilitating communications, the Communications Committee is composed of Senior Leadership, representatives of the Advancement, Facilities, and Technology staffs, and a Pastoral Council member. This committee meets monthly to discuss important communications initiatives and issues.
An important part of communications is welcoming new parishioners to the St. Mary’s community and the Welcoming Committee takes the lead in this initiative under the direction of the Pastoral Council.
