St Mary-the-Virgin Episcopal Church is a Scottish Charity - Charity Number: SC001441
St. Mary’s Episcopal Church
We renew the heartfelt thanks of all at St Mary’s to those in our community who have worked tirelessly to keep us safe from Covid-19.
As we begin to emerge from lockdown, we remember and pray for families who have lost loved ones – especially where circumstances prevented proper farewells.
We look forward to reopening our churches, to meeting again and celebrating – with much rejoicing and thanksgiving!
Meanwhile, we invite you to join us via our website:
STROMNESS WRITING GROUP
In line with advice regarding the Covid 19 crisis the Stromness Writing Group will not be meeting for the foreseeable future and until such time the local health authority confirm groups can meet again.
However, the Group is meeting on Zoom so anyone wishing to join them can make contact via their Facebook page.
REPORT ON THE FOY
The Autumn Foy was a great success. Donations on the evening as well as a generous gift from a member have increased the Music and Art Fund by £250.
Canon Tom Miller
We are very grateful to Canon Tom Miller for his ministry over the past four years. Tom has retired and returned to his native New York, though we expect that he will be visiting Orkney before too long!
We are in the process of recruiting Tom’s successor
