Our Mission: God is calling the people of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Wayne, Pennsylvania to follow Jesus’ teaching to love God with all our hearts, souls and minds; and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Therefore we love and embrace each other, friend and stranger alike in worship, service and prayer
as we seek to live in and share God’s Word.

Weekly Activities


The Merry Men made yummy funnel cakes and brats outdoors, while indoors there were new and interesting foods to try. There were soup ingredients in a jar, overnight oatmeal in jars, and cookie mixes, too. We found pesto and pickles, relishes and jams, some of them perennial favorites. We may even have had some of Father Joseph's barbecue sauce, but that is a vanishing commodity; so, get yours while you can. Erlis and Ellen entertained us with piano duets! There was hot and cold drinks and mountains of desserts. We are sorry if you missed this extravaganza—and hope you were able to take home a prepared casserole for dinner! Thank you everyone that joined us!

Sunday Children's Christian Formation , November 26 at 9:00 am


Children of all ages are welcome to join Ms. Edith Helms for rehearsals of the Christmas Pageant beginning this Sunday in the Children's Chapel at 9 am. The Pageant will be presented at 4 pm on Christmas Eve


Sunday  Adult Faith Formation Class  

Adult Christian Formation Sunday, November 26 at 9:00 am

In preparation for the Advent Quiet Morning on Saturday, December 3 with Sister Roseanne McDougall, all are invited to join in a study of Saint Teresa of Avila's life and mystical teaching from 9 am to 9:45 in the Navajo Room. Some may be familiar with her autobiography, The Interior Castle or The Way of Perfection. She was a contemplative nun who was nonetheless one of the most extraordinary religious reformers of the Counter-Reformation, whose writing is still considered essential reading for study of the life of prayer and religious reformers of any age. All are welcome.

Please Note: There will be no Adult Formation on December 3 due to our Parish Breakfast sponsored by our  Merry Men

Our Story:

St. Mary's has been on the corner of Lancaster and Louella Avenue for over a hundred years.  St. Mary’s and the village of Wayne grew up together.  If you like, you can find a historical account of that growth HERE, but please know, our focus is not on our past, but rather it is on the church of the 21st century.  As an Episcopal Church, we love our liturgy.  We will pray and sing and learn together through liturgy that honors God and feeds our soul.   When you come visit, we will welcome you with open arms.  As we grow in our relationship, we will hold your hand and cry with you if you are sick or distressed, and we will rejoice with you as you celebrate life's milestones. We will challenge you to learn more about God and how God will reconcile the world back unto himself. And we will prepare you to go out into the world and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
