Because of a grant from the Catholic Foundation and a donation by Alarm Solutions we have added needed security to the church and Burkley Center.  You may notice motion sensors located in doors and windows. Included with these upgrades we added a camera to the choir loft.  This will make the church visible to us via the computer.  We believe this will allow us to leave the church unlocked while also protecting the treasurers of St. Mary’s. 

As a service to our parents, we decided to put a monitor by the restrooms.  There are times when parents with young children gather in this space while settling their children, this monitor will allow you to continue your participation in the mass.     



The next youth group meeting is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on February 15th in the Atrium.
