Partners in Ministry:  St. Mary's Church, Stone Harbor and
St. Barnabas By-The-Sea, Villas

For seven years, St. Mary's has been engaged in a shared ministry with St. Barnabas Church, Villas. This ministry has taken different forms but is built around a mutual desire to see our parishes share our gifts for the increased Episcopal presence in our County. Components of this unique collaboration include mutual support of St. Barnabas' food pantry, distribution of holiday food boxes to needy families, participation in social and fundraising events, and shared services.
