Dear Friends,

Welcome to St. Mary of the Hills website. We are members of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Western North Carolina. St. Mary’s is an active parish with a contemplative heart. We desire to serve God’s world following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ and we long for the union with God Jesus embodied. So a strong emphasis on outreach, mission, and service, are balanced by a deep commitment to prayer, study and worship. I hope you will use this website to navigate the flow of our common life together. If you are looking for a parish family or simply a place to worship while you are visiting in the area, whoever you are, you are welcome at St. Mary of the Hills.

Yours in Christ, 

Rick Lawler, Rector
