PARISH OF ST MARY'S KERRISDALE

Registered Name: PARISH OF ST MARY'S KERRISDALE

Business Number: 136523222RR0001

Our Mission Statement:

In Christ we are a welcoming and inclusive community that knows and shares the love of God and serves those in need.

The members of St. Mary’s have always been part of the progressive, liberal theology of the Anglican Church, but we also enjoy the traditional settings of services mixed in with more contemporary fare. The parish welcomes all equally – young, older, single, families, LGBTQ persons, or otherwise. Our current congregation is a joyous mix of “cradle” Anglicans, members baptized into other denominations and faiths, and newcomers to Christ.

We are a medium-large parish with a friendly congregation. We have a variety of worship styles and education programs to help people grow in their faith. We are active in outreach, have a significant amount of programming that supports the parish community life and builds relationships amongst our parish family.

Our average Sunday morning attendance across the three different services is approximately 240 people. We welcome newcomers as well as those returning after time away. Please introduce yourself to us and let us know how we can get to know you better.

St. Mary’s Kerrisdale is one of 65 parishes in the Diocese of New Westminster.
