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?  Did you miss confirmation? Then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you.  It begins with a cook-out on August 19th, at 6:30 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!

BELLS of ST. MARY’S UPDATE           

Thanks to the generosity of parishioners we have pledged $95, 480.00 for 2009-2010 campaign.  100% of the monies collected over our BAA goal of $48,000 stays right here at St. Mary’s!  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 rear of the church near the picture of Pope Benedict.  If you already pledged, nothing further is required.  We appreciate your generosity!

June’s session of Theology and a Pub asks a simple question "Catholic Media, Not an Oxymoron". It seems that there are a lot of things in the popular media that are not exactly in keeping with the teachings of the Church and the Church is being looked upon in an unfavorable light in return. So, where we get our information and entertainment affects our perception. How do we make sure we are receiving the right message? Join us at Gresso's on June 16th at 7:30 p.m. to hear David Garick, editor of the Catholic Times, talk to us about Catholic media in our diocese and beyond. Gresso's is located at 961 South High Street. Doors open at 6 and food and drink are available for purchase before the talk. For more information go to

Confirmation will be celebrated for our young people here at 11:30 a.m. on November 1st.  Parents of high school students who missed confirmation should contact Father Thomas about preparation for the sacrament.
