Stewardship Drive: Stewardship Campaign for 2011. Pledge cards are available to en-able giving by our members to support St. Mary’s mission, to carry out the work God has for us to do. Today our Stewardship speaker is Ms, Lisa Slocum. Thanks to all who have already pledged! The Stewardship Campaign will reach out to the entire congregation.
