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).  Bring friends if you wish. RCIA sessions will be held each Wednesday starting at 7:00 p.m.  Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter.  We look forward to seeing you in August.



The parish offices will be closed on July 3rd in observance of the holiday.  We will have a noon mass on Saturday, the Fourth of July, in memory of all deceased veterans.

BELLS of ST. MARY’S UPDATE           

Thanks to the generosity of parishioners we have met our  goal of $48,000 for the 2009-10 BAA campaign. Our goal for St. Mary’s is $150,000 a year over a three (3) year period. 100% of the monies collected over our BAA goal stay here at St. Mary. These monies will be used for historic preservation of our buildings and tuition assistance for those in need to attend our school. 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.



WOMEN’S RESPITE PROGRAM….Can you volunteer some of your time? Volunteers are needed to help set-up, transport, serve meals, bake cookies, or clean-up for the Women’s Respite Program to be held at the St. Theresa’s Shrine from Tues., July 14, through Sat, July 18.  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.  The purpose of the program is to invite women to come together in a safe place for a mini-vacation.  Through the hospitality and efforts of volunteers, each woman can have time to herself or with others and experience creativity and spirituality that they cannot always enjoy in their everyday lives. If you want to help or need more information, please contact Debbie Pecinovsky at 868-8208 or at .
