Who We Are

FullSizeRender

We Are Mission-Driven. We Are Anglican.

St. Mary of the Snows is a church with a rich history dating to 1898 in Eagle River. With a new and larger building purchased in 2013 we have a new energy and an expanded focus.

We are called to be a real and tangible blessing to our community. We’re not another church for the sake of ourselves or for the sake of churchgoers. We are a church for the sake of others. Pictured Is the Needs Ministry which provides free clothing, paper products, toiletries and other items to over 650 people monthly. The Needs Ministry is run by Northwoods Share which is an organization of 7 area churches, and local businesses and organizations.

Being Anglican means many of our practices and priorities are ancient. We follow an ancient liturgy and take communion together. We value the time in the church’s history before it started to divide out into different groups. We love our historical connection and the fact that we worship as the earliest Christians did.

Being mission-driven means we reach out to the world around us instead of hoping to drag in the world (outreach instead of in-drag). Like missionaries, we are “sent” to greater Eagle River in order to share the good news of what Jesus has done and wants to do in all of our lives, our city, and our world.
We are connected to the Anglican Diocese of Quincy, which is a part of the Anglican Church in North America.
