Whether you are a new member of our parish or have been part of St. Mary's for years, you will find in these pages the many programs, activities, and services available to you at St. Mary's. We discovered years ago that parishioners flourish in their service to Christ when they are serving in the area of their gifts and in conjunction with their God-given uniqueness. Ask God in prayer to aid you to discover your gifts and where you might use them most effectively.
