PLAN  AHEAD

On October 13, 14 and 15, St. Mary’s will enjoy an evening parish retreat, also known as a Parish Mission. Father John Collins of the Paulist Fathers will speak each evening on the theme of events in our lives in which we experience God. Father Thomas says Father Collins is the best mission preacher he has ever heard, and he asks that all organizations, committees and clubs clear those dates so that their members are able to come to the mission talks.

 

JULY PLANNING SESSIONS

On July 13, 20 and 27, at 10:00 a.m. all interested parishioners are invited to participate in a parish self study authored by the diocese.
