Our mission is to hear the Word, share in the sacrifice, serve the Lord, and create community.

This Week at St. Mary's


As the journey of Advent continues, on December 10th we light the second candle along with the first.  This is the candle of hope, and some refer to it as the Bethlehem Candle, reminding us that Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Daily Advent Prayers


There will be an Advent Memorial Service on Thursday, December 14th at 7:00 p.m. in the Church.  Let us come together as we remember our loved ones in prayer, scripture, music and ritual.  Refreshments following.

The St. Mary's Advent Penance Service will be held on Sunday, December 17th at 2:00 p.m.  Several priests will be available to hear confessions.
