Welcome to St. Mary’s Catholic Church! We hope that you will find us a vibrant community of Faith who welcomes and cares deeply about every person who walks through our doors, as we strive to be 100% faithful to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
We welcome you to join us for Sunday Mass and other parish events, whether you are a member of our parish, a visiting Catholic, a fallen-away Catholic, or a non-Catholic who is searching for the truth. Jesus Christ has Good News for everyone.
Every Sunday following the 11:00 Mass, our hospitality team puts out refreshments so that our parishioners and guests can hang around and visit. Please join us! On the 2nd Sunday of the month, we normally have a larger social in our Community Center
We hope that you find our Sunday Masses to be solemn, prayerful, and reverent. Every Mass is a celebration of the heavenly liturgy, joining together with all the angels and saints, and with every member of the Body of Christ throughout the world – past, present, and future. Our goal at Mass is not to entertain an audience, but to draw all present into this eternal mystery of Jesus Christ, in order for our lives to be totally transformed by Him.
Near the end of every Mass, we Catholics receive Holy Communion – the Body and Blood of Christ. This is a holy moment, and should only be undertaken by practicing Catholics in good standing. However, many of our participants are young children, non-Catholic guests, or Catholics who need the Sacrament of Confession. We welcome them as well – not to receive the Eucharist (until they are ready) – but to receive a blessing from Father if they so choose. To receive this blessing, fold your arms over your chest (in the shape of a “W”) and bow your head.
If you’re not Catholic, we also welcome you to learn more about our Catholic Faith. For 20 hour-long videos that answer commonly asked questions, click here. If you’re interested in joining other searchers and learning together about the Catholic faith, click here for our RCIA program.
If you’re a Catholic who’s been away from the Church, we cannot encourage you enough to take advantage of the Sacrament of Confession. Father is available in the Confessional every Saturday from 10-Noon, and is happy to assist you in making a good Confession and receiving God’s abundant mercy. There are confession guides on the right-hand side of the church, where the line forms for Confessions.
