Update the design of the St. Mary’s Website: We are blessed by a talented team of volunteers who maintain St. Mary’s website and Facebook pages, lead by Dorothy Ross and Lisa Slocum. There were over 6,000 visitors to the website in 2010 and we have over 100 “Friends” on the Facebook page. This is a new and important “Front Door” for St. Mary’s Church. If you would like to help give your advice about what should be on the website, please talk with Dorothy, Lisa or Rev. Kooperkamp. You don’t even have to know about computers to help! Thank you!!
The NYC Redeemers Coalition will meet March 28th at 2:00 pm. All are invited.
