Saint Mary’s began as a memorial chapel in honor of Alida Greely Brown who died suddenly on April 25, 1889. The chapel was built and dedicated in 1890 – 125 years ago. Out of profound grief, a place where all can gather and experience the amazing grace of God has grown and developed. In 2015, we are celebrating 125 years of faithful ministry and mission in the name of Jesus Christ with a number of special events. Below are some pictures, videos and remembrances from this season of celebration.
