St. Mary’s Outreach

St. Mary’s Outreach

Food Pantry. Our food pantry ministry provides space for an active and loving presence, touching individuals and families who, for whatever reason, find themselves without enough food to eat. Click here to learn more.

Christmas Ministry.  Each year St. Mary’s volunteers, in partnership with local churches and other groups, organize a special program where families in need may shop and volunteer, and children may experience the joys and wonder of Christmas.  This has come to be a high point of the year for our volunteers and those who participate.  For information on volunteering or being a recipient family, contact clergy or staff.

Residential ministry. St. Mary’s is launching a new program for ministers in residence. These individuals will live in community on our campus, participate in the worship and service life of St. Mary’s and engage in outreach serving in other urban settings. Participants may include:

  • Lay persons discerning a call to ordained or lay urban ministry;
  • Seminarians taking a gap year in their studies or at the conclusion of study;
  • Clinical Pastoral Education students; or
  • Clergy discerning or called to urban ministry.

Those interested should contact our senior pastor, the Rev. Canon Beth Tjoflat.
