On the first and third Sundays of the month during the 2015-16 school year, St. Mary’s will host Sunday Supper Student Gathering- a relaxed worship meal for students and young adults. Gathering at 6PM, we will share food and fellowship around the dinner table, engage in conversation around scripture, and pray Compline together to finish our evening. We will clean up and finish by 7:30PM, beginning our week fed in body and spirit.
Want to get involved? Come join us. For Sunday Supper, please use the parish office entrance- from Locust Walk take the path between the church and Civic House, and the glass parish office doors will be visible right next to the playground. Ring the buzzer and someone will let you in! For more information contact rector (at) stmarysatpenn (dot) org.

Music 10 is a course for credit at the University of Pennsylvania, which matches ten students with ten Philadelphia musicians for 20 lessons during the year. Students must audition in order to be placed in the program. As a way to “pay forward” the benefits of the Music 10 program, students are required to perform at various venues around the Campus of the University of Pennsylvania. St. Mary’s is fortunate enough to have 4 students who perform at St. Mary’s at various times throughout the year.
Our wonderful friends at the CA! Their mission “is to advocate for peace and justice and educate for faith development of the Penn community.” From their website: “The Christian Association at the University of Pennsylvania serves as an ecumenical resource at Penn and the greater community providing advocacy and direct service on cultural diversity, interfaith education, sexuality, and peacemaking. We do not proselytize to a religious ideology, and through advocacy and direct service we provide opportunities for individuals to develop their own personal voice.”
The Rev. Mariclair Partee Carlsen serves as the Episcopal Chaplain to the University of Pennsylvania, and is an associate chaplain at Penn. She represents Episcopal Ministry as a member of the Penn Religious Communities Council.
