The Feast of Saint Mary the Virgin

The Feast of Saint Mary the Virgin will be observed with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 6:30pm on Monday, August 15th. In an effort to embrace our catholic witness, St. Paul’s has committed to observe all Principle Feasts, Other Feasts of Our Lord, as well as Marian Feasts (BCP 15-16). This is an acknowledgment that the liturgy is not just something we do on Sundays, but a sacramental vision that leads to personal transformation in all areas of our lives.
