O most mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We are followers of a Way...

  • instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ
  • recorded in Holy Scripture
  • expressed in the Creeds and Councils of the undivided Church
  • celebrated in the Sacraments
  • preserved by the teaching of bishops in Apostolic Succession
  • observed in the forms of the Anglican tradition

We walk this Way to grow in knowledge and love of our Lord, to strengthen the Light and resist the Darkness within and without, and to strive to live each day within the Word and still within the world. We believe that traditional worship is still valuable and relevant to contemporary society.

If you are seeking a church home or just passing through, please feel welcome.

Come unto me, all ye that travail and are heavy laden, and I will refresh you. (Matthew 11:28)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

So God loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, to the end that all that believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)


1 August 2020 - Morning Prayer

20 June 2020 - Choral Mass

We will celebrate the Second Sunday after Trinity with a Choral Mass. Bishop Bulloch (with the gracious allowance of the congregation of St. Ignatius, Riverside) will preach and celebrate the service with Holy Communion. Spiritual Communion with our brethren staying Safer At Home will still be available via Zoom.

Download the service leaflet here.
Join the Zoom meeting here.

Please note that all previous guidance regarding in person attendance is still in force. Additionally, please note the following:

  • You will be asked to sign in and provide a contact e-mail or phone number so that we may contact you in case of a COVID-19 related incident. This also serves as your acknowledgement of risk.
  • Please follow the directions of the usher(s) for Communion. Use the tape guidelines to maintain 6′ distancing. You will be receiving Communion in one species (Host only) directly from the Bishop from hand to hand, standing. Return to your seat via the side aisles.
  • The guidelines from Los Angeles County allow singing and group recitation as long as 6′ distancing can be maintained (masks will be worn throughout the service by all parishioners). It is established that singing and recitation do increase the possible range of particulates. If the increased risk in any way makes you uncomfortable, please continue to attend our services virtually.
5 June 2020 - Church Reopening with Morning Prayer

Services will resume at St. Mary’s this Sunday, letting us enter Ordinary Time just a little more ordinary. We will be maintaining our Zoom webcast to maintain our support for our distant members and those who choose to attend virtually.

Download the service leaflet here. Note that you will need to print or digitally view the leaflet; no printed copies will be available at the service.

Connect to the Zoom service here.

Please note: Even with appropriate safeguards, an increased risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any social gathering or public place where other people are present. By attending services in person, you voluntarily assume all risks and personal responsibility for any related illness or other complications. We strongly urge parishioners in the CDC high risk category to continue to attend services virtually.

Our required Reopening Protocol form may be viewed here.

This is a summary of major changes. Note that additional guidance will be forthcoming when we resume celebration of the Mass.

  • Attendance will be strictly limited to a maximum of 30 physical congregants.
  • The Parish Hall will be closed. No food or drinks will be dispensed (not even water). No Sunday School for children. No coffee hour following services.
  • If you wish to socialize before or after Church, please do so outside and maintain proper social distancing.
  • Entry and exit will be through the main entrance only; the rear door will be strictly for clergy and staff or as an emergency exit.
  • Every other pew will be blocked off.
  • The collection basin will be placed at the rear of the Church; please make your contributions as you enter.
  • Printed bulletins will not be available; please view the service leaflet on your digital device or download and print the leaflet in advance.

  • For attendees:
    • Please attend virtually if:

26 May 2020 - Church Reopening Planning Meeting

As we enter Phase 2, it is becoming possible for houses of worship to reopen in LA County under certain guidelines. These will require some changes to physical layout, the logistics and rubrics for holding services, and some additional infrastructure. The vestry will be holding a planning meeting to discuss the steps necessary for us to hold some form of services physically in our beloved Church building at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, 5/27. All parishioners are welcome to attend.

Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

from The Book of Common Prayer
