She was born on Staten Island, raised in Goshen, NY, where her father, Douglas Murray Glasspool, served as rector of St. James’ Church until his death in 1989.
Bishop Mary graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Magna cum Laude, from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA in 1976; earned her Master of Divinity degree from Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, MA in 1981; was ordained deacon in June 1981 by Bishop Paul Moore, Jr. of New York; and in March 1982 was ordained priest by Bishop Lyman Ogilby of Pennsylvania.
From 1981 to 1984, she served as assistant to the rector, and later interim priest-in-charge, of St. Paul’s Church, Philadelphia, moving from there to be rector of St. Luke’s and St. Margaret’s Church, Boston, where she remained until 1992.
She then moved to the Diocese of Maryland, first as rector of St. Margaret’s Church in Annapolis (1992-2001) and then, until her election in 2009 as suffragan bishop of Los Angeles, as Canon to the Bishops in the Maryland diocese.

Our Summer Picnic in 2015
Even though we had rain, we had a great turnout for our annual picnic in June 2015. The children had a blast with the indoor games, complete with prizes for everyone. A special thank you to Father Joe, George Thornhill, and Courtney Henry, who made sure the grill was under control in the rain.
Thank you to all the guests that came and please remind them that they are also always welcome to Sunday services and brunch.
