Good morning and welcome to St. Mary’s

Harlem Chamber Player, Please set aside Sunday Feb. 24, at 3pm for the 5th annual Black History Month Concert by the Harlem Chamber Player. A diverse and exciting program is planned. For more information check the website http://www.HarlemChamber

 February is Black History Month. As is the tradition here at St. Mary’s the last Sunday of the month, February 24, is a time when we share some poetic composition that tells us about the Back experience. If you would like to read that day please sign up on the sheet on the table in the back of the church.

A monthly Bible Study will begin during Lent beginning Feb. 26, starting with dinner at 7.00pm at the home of Fr. Tom Pellaton at 2186 Fifth Ave. Apt. 7D (off of 135th St.) The actual study will begin at 7.45pm. Once again Fr. Tom will make the main course and salad and those of you who attend can bring soft drinks and dessert. Also bring your own Bible if you can. We will begin a thorough study of the Gospel of Mark and continue the class monthly till we accomplish the full reading of the Gospel. The second session will take place March 19th.

Vestry members please remember that the next Vestry meeting is Feb. 24, starting at noon after the 10am Eucharist

Lent at Mary’s, this year as in the recent past years St. Mary’s is encouraged to attend all or some of the Wednesday evening prayer services being offered by various churches here in Harlem. See the schedule below. Usually a light supper is served after the service.
