St. Mary's is an assembly of Christian
believers who gather together in the
community of Silver Run.  We are a
collection of people with different needs and
concerns and yet we are called to a unity
which grows from joining together in worship
of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit.  Each of us has different God-given
talents which we are called to use to witness
to our faith in God's love revealed through
Jesus Christ.  We are called and empowered
by the Holy Spirit to invite others to share in
our faith in Christ and to welcome them
into the life of our congregation.

PETITIONS FOR CHURCH PRAYERS – “Pastor Lee” welcomes your additional
petitions for the “Prayers of Intercession,” which we offer during our worship service.  
Simply inform him before service.  Having something written up is not necessary, but
greatly appreciated.

No sign up for a time is necessary as it only takes 3 to 5
minutes to take the pictures. We are taking 3 pictures of individuals or families. One of
the three will be selected for the directory. Members are not required to purchase
pictures as the main purpose is to get pictures for a new directory. They will be available
for purchase in several sizes with cost being less than $10.

As your picture is taken you will get a proof sheet. The first picture marked "Nr-Dir" will
be the one selected for the directory. If you don't like this one, tell us which one you do.
If you don't like all the pictures we can retake them. The proof is yours to keep. If you
want prints for yourself, just give me the nr and the size. The ones you select for prints
will be corrected as much as possible (reflections, blemishes, color correction, etc.).
There is no change for the proof. Print costs will be 2x3.5 (large wallet)$.25. 4x6 $1,
5x7 $2, 8x10 $4, 8.5x11 $5. – Jim Crist


Please join us in our attempts to develop a more comprehensive infrastructure for Aging
in Place in Carroll County. In order to identify the aging needs of the citizens of Carroll
County, the Commission on Aging & Disabilities has partnered with The Center for the
Study of Aging at McDaniel College, to survey residents of Carroll County, Maryland age
60+ to identify the resources needed to help them to age in place for as long as possible.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define aging in place as "the ability to live
in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of
age, income, or ability level." The survey is divided into three parts: demographics,
current health and functional status, and services that may be of interest. The anonymous
survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The responses will be used to
develop a comprehensive Aging in Place needs assessment report for Carroll County. The
survey can be accessed:

We are reaching out to our faith based community, asking for your assistance to
distribute this survey link. If you have any parishioners who would prefer a hard copy of
the survey be sent to them, please contact Leslie Wagner at or
