St. Mary’s Family Ministries

St. Mary’s welcomes families of all ages and compositions and we believe that a family that prays together, stays together. To that end our worship involves children of all ages along with adults and all aspects of our parish life are designed to meet the needs of all God’s children from age 3 to 93 and beyond. Our worship, fellowship times, steel band practices and youth activities are all focused upon engaging young people in a safe and loving environment. Blended families, non-traditional families and families with children with special needs are are welcome here and we hope that we can be a part of the joy you share together.

What other activities are there for my children at St. Mary’s?

We strive to offer activities and events for children at least once a month. In the past, these have included participating in Diocesan retreats at the Barbara C. Harris Camp in Greenfield, NH, attending Diocesan youth events, going bowling, bike-riding, indoor rock-climbing and participating in the Walk for Hunger! All upcoming youth events can be found on our calendar and you can contact Father Edwin with any questions.

How do I have my child baptized or confirmed?

If you are a parent, caregiver, young person or adult interested in baptism or confirmation, please contact our Priest-in-Charge, The Rev. Edwin Johnson at padreedwinj@gmail.com or call him at 857-236-8790. We offer classes and other learning opportunities for those who are new to the faith and/or interested in deepening their faith.
