Andalusia Community Events from WAAO | Events
Sometimes December, with Christmas and the coming New Year, bring difficult memories of loss and sadness. Sometimes there is simply a need for peace and serenity in what can be a very stressful and busy time. St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, located at 1307 East Three Notch Street, will offer a special service on Tuesday, Dec 18th , at 6pm that will recognize and honor these feelings. The service of readings, prayers, and music will remember the hope of the Christmas story and the promise of peace shared by the angels so long ago. Fellowship and refreshments will follow. You are welcome. For questions or for more info, contact the church office at 222-2487.
