WHO WE ARE . . .
St. Mary’s Episcopal Church has enjoyed more than a century of ministry to our island community, serving with exceptional worship, education, and outreach. We believe that our remarkable building reflects the spirit of the people who worship in it. In addition to our building, God has blessed us with remarkable members. We have a legacy of gifts we intend to share with all whom we meet.
There is weekly Eucharist, preaching, a sense of belonging, spiritual direction, good music, and a venue for weddings and other milestone events.
As a welcoming community of faith in the Anglican tradition we come from diverse economic, cultural, and religious backgrounds and include year-round islanders, summer residents, and visitors from around the world. Many of these return year after year and consider St. Mary’s their spiritual home. Though rooted on an island, we are open to the world. So, if you are visiting Shelter Island, or searching for a spiritual home, you are warmly invited to worship with us and learn more about St Mary’s.
