About Our ChurchA small, community minded, active church on the shores of the Nipigon River.
St. Mary’s is a faith community, endeavouring to live and work as people of God.
To increase our knowledge and understanding of God’s word and, remaining open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, seek to discern God’s will for us, in humble awareness that we represent God and his son, Jesus Christ, in the world.

Groups and Activities
We engage in a variety of faith formation activities, like Bible studies, prayer workshops, and retreats. These are organized seasonally by both clergy and lay leaders.
St. Mary’s youth meet monthly for fun, study, and work. Sessions are organized collaboratively by youth and leaders. Anyone aged 13 and up is welcome.
The altar guild takes care of the vessels and hangings and prepares the church for worship each week. This dedicated group welcomes new members.
Following worship on the first Sunday of the month, we gather to eat a pot-luck lunch together. Everyone, with or without food, is welcome!
St. Mary’s offers a substantial lunch to the Nipigon community roughly once a month in the fall, winter and spring. Lunches usually take place on the third Wednesday of the month. This is both a fundraiser for St. Mary’s and an opportunity to gather in community.
