Affinity Groups

Daughters of the King

The Daughters of the King is a national order for women who undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating prayer and service into a life that is dedicated to strengthening the spiritual health and engagement of the parish. At St. Mary’s, in addition to various service and prayer projects, the Daughters typically sponsor a reflective Quiet Day, usually at the beginning of Lent, that is open to the entire congregation and other service and prayer projects.

Fall Fellowship Feasts

This is an opportunity to get to know some of the wonderful people at St. Mary’s. Share three potluck meals over three months in the Autumn. Share meals and conversation as partners on the journey of faith at St. Mary the Virgin. Sign up is late September; the groups are designated to help you meet someone new!

Men’s Group

This group provides an opportunity for the men of the parish to meet for fellowship, share stories, and strengthen our bonds of friendship. We also continually explore ways to welcome new members and serve the broader parish. Men’s group events include meeting for dinner and conversation throughout the year and organizing a Parish Barbecue (or two). Events are advertised in the Sunday Bulletin and Highlights. Our discussion topics will include the challenges and pressures we face in our daily lives, to meet the expectations of our careers, our families, our parents and ourselves.

St. Mary’s Pride

Members and friends of St. Mary’s LGBTQ+ Community meet quarterly (more or less) to strengthen our connections with each other through social interaction. We welcome new members and inquirers as we discern opportunities for inclusion and outreach on behalf of St. Mary the Virgin to groups that embrace and support LGBTQ+ concerns throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We also strive to build greater awareness at St. Mary’s of the needs and concerns of the LGBTQ+ community via our participation in the liturgy and prayers during Pride month (June) as well as throughout the year.

Young Professionals Group

Young professional parishioners aged approximately 20-40 gather once a month-ish to build relationships and community through social events and service projects, such as serving at Edward II, serving food to the homeless, helping with the Holiday Giving Tree and many more activities to come!
