Mimi--Youth Leader

Mimi Hamilton–Children & Youth Leader, having fun at the St. Mary’s Mardi Gras Parade!



Our goal at St. Mary’s is to provide youth with positive & fun Christian experiences.  We are currently welcoming  all middle and high school students to join us for EYC (Episcopal Community Youth).  We get together for fellowship, games & activities, discussions, devotions and of course, FOOD! We also enjoy doing fun stuff around the community, like our SUMMER BIG KAHUNA trip–WHAT A BLAST THAT WAS!!

Take a break from the normal teen life (is there anything normal about a teens life??!), and come hang out with us…..bring your friends because EVERYONE is welcome here!  So if you’re between the ages of 12 and 18 bring your friends and join us!

Please call Mimi Hamilton at the church office 850-623-2905, if you & your friends are interested in attending. We LOVE to get a group of teens together!!

A Prayer for Young Persons

God our Father, you see your children growing up in an
unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways
give more life than the ways of the world, and that following
you is better than chasing after selfish goals. Help them to
take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Book of Common Prayer, p. 829
