Our services include a rich tradition of set and responsive prayers and time for listening to and reflecting on Scripture. Traditional hymns, as well as more contemporary Christian music, are spread throughout the service offering many opportunities to lift up your voice in praise. Holy Communion is a central part of our service and everyone is invited to partake.
Children are most welcome at St. Mary's. Church School is offered in the parish room downstairs from the sanctuary during the service. Following the service we gather in our parish hall for fellowship and refreshments.
St. Mary's provides many opportunities for involvement: Men's Ministry (Brotherhood of St. Andrews), Anglican Church Women (A.C.W.), Youth Ministry, Sunday School, Pastoral Care, Bible Study, Altar Guild, by taking part in the service as a Greeter, Reader, Server, Acolyte, or Choir Member, or by joining one of our various committees.
Our parish sponsors two foster children through the Christian Children's Fund of Canada and supports the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), the official international aid and development agency of the Anglican Church of Canada. We collect donations for our sister parish, St. Barnabas', community outreach programs.
We are proud of our rich heritage dating back to 1865. The interior of our beautiful, heritage church building is finished throughout in rich natural cedar. Many exquisite stained glass windows and other fine memorials attest to the love and devotion given to St. Mary's by its faithful members over the years.
A few key people at St. Mary's are Arvin Amayag, Vicar; Doreen McQueen, Vicar's Warden; Rafael Chan, People's Warden; Diana Welsh, Musical Director.
