MARK your CALENDARS
Are you interested in learning about the Catholic faith? Are you looking into joining the Church? Are you a Catholic who has been away for a while? Then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you. It begins with a cook-out on August 19th, at 6 p.m. on the back patio of Father’s house (to the right of the Church when facing it from 3rd street). You can bring any support that you need. RCIA sessions will be held each Wednesday starting at 7 p.m. Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter. We look forward to seeing you in August!

WOMEN’S RESPITE PROGRAM….Can you volunteer some of your time?

Any time that you can give throughout the day or evening is needed. The Women’s Respite Program is sponsored through the St. Stephen’s Community Center.

Our goal for St. Mary’s is $150,000 a year over a three (3) year period. These monies will be used for historic preservation of our buildings and tuition assistance for those in need to attend our school. Some possible visible building repairs needed are: Specht Center windows, carpet in the sanctuary of the church, sidewalks in front of church and school, etc. If you have not pledged or given to this important campaign please prayerfully consider doing so. Campaign cards and brochures are in the pews. If you already pledged, nothing further is required. We appreciate your generosity!
