Mary's Table
Lois Lyon



Mary's Table provides food and fellowship to all who hunger or seek companionship in a loving environment of acceptance. Started by parishioners of Saint Mary's by the Sea Episcopal Church in Point Pleasant Beach, and located there, Mary's Table opened her doors on November 1 of 2012. Volunteers from other churches, communities and businesses quickly became involved in this worthy mission. To date over 70,000 meals have been served. Mary's Table is supported by the generosity and kindness of donations from individuals and businesses as well as grants applied for and received. All are welcome, every Thursday evening from 4 PM to 6 PM at Mary's Table.


For over 9 years Mary's Table has provided hot meals and warm companionship to the community. Continuing to serve our guests has been particularly challenging this past year but the need has never been greater. The volunteers of Mary's Table recognize none of this would have been possible without the vision, compassion and determination of Lois Lyon.

Lois, along with her parish friends Chuck Reagan and Joan Bryant, saw a role for St Mary's to feed the bodies and spirits of those who hunger, and since that time Lois has lead the Mary's Table family of volunteers, greeting guests, celebrating birthdays, and making every guest feel at home. We wish to honor Lois's unending commitment to Mary's Table by dedicating the meals served during the month of February to her, as a symbol of our love and gratitude.
