To welcome all God’s children and to teach, nourish, and guide them to an intimate relationship with Christ. We are prayerful, welcoming and generous. We provide evangelization, sacraments, opportunities for prayer, faith formation, education and pastoral ministry to the flock Christ has entrusted to our care.
OUR CORE VALUES…
Prayerful St. Mary’s parishioners are prayerful. The liturgy here is definitely not a production or performance, but a time of profound prayer and worship of the living God. Many of our people come in before Mass or stay afterwards to get closer to God. We have long confession lines and beautiful First Saturday devotions.
Welcoming St. Mary’s parishioners are welcoming. We have lots of young children at Mass, and don’t mind that they sing to the Lord in their own way. Many of our families stay after Mass to visit and to welcome newcomers, and we have a large parish social every month.
Generous St. Mary’s parishioners are generous. For many years we have sacrificed above and beyond to support the mission of Catholic education. We don’t have very many wealthy families, but that has never stopped the parish from opening their hearts and their pocketbooks whenever a pressing need is presented to them.
