BISHOP READY ADVISORY BOARD
St. Mary’s is entitled to a second member on Bishop Ready’s High School Advisory Board. Interested persons are invited to call Father Thomas at 445-9668.
A small statue and a display
of relics were recently taken from our church. The statue has not been
brought back, but the relics have been. They will be locked away until we
can mount them more securely. A security system is being installed in the
church to prevent future problems. We want to continue to leave the
church open for visits during the day. Many churches are locked all week,
and a security system might help us to avoid that here. This summer, the
parish offices will not be open to the general public since we have a day care
program in the Burkley building, but parishioners are always welcome to come in
– just call ahead, or use the speaker phone by the door on
FOURTH OF JULY EXPOSITION?

Also, there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament after mass until If folks would like exposition to be extended, please call Father Thomas at 445-9668 to indicate which hour you can be present. With so many family gatherings and people traveling, we need to be sure at least two people can be present during exposition.
