The statements from the diocese regarding your payments to the BAA usually have a lag time.  If you think an error has occurred, please call us at 445 9668 and we will try to answer your questions.  Also, so many of you made a three year pledge, but be aware that the statements from the diocese represent only what the pledge is for each year of your pledge.



During coffee and doughnuts next Sunday, Father Thomas will meet with folks interested in discussing the future needs of the parish and the diocese.

This second meeting concerns topics such as: preparing to meet the needs of God’s people here at St. Mary’s five or ten years from now; and, the parish’s relationship to the wider community in the years to come.



Legacy Campaign has entered stage two of our efforts: contacting our high school alumni around the country about the campaign and inviting them to participate.  If you are an alumnus who is still a parishioner here, we apologize if you get a second mailing, as we are still refining our data base.

The bishop has given the go ahead on the bell and clock restoration, and final contracts are being drawn up to get the project started.



Bible Study just finished the Gospel of John. The St. Mary’s Beginner’s Bible study has finished all the gospels and the book of Acts the past 5 years!  The Bible study will be on break until the fall. This fall we will be studying Paul’s letter to the Romans! We meet on Weds. from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Please consider joining the group in the fall.
