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 both churches 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.

Msgr. Ken left today for his annual trip to our Twin Parish Holy Trinity in Uganda. Please keep him in your prayers throughout his travels. Here are two beautiful prayers submitted by St. Mary's Parishioners:
Heavenly Father, we ask you to bless Msgr. Ken as he travels to Uganda. Send down upon him Your guardian angels to guide and protect him. Let him be renewed in strength and faith as he visits with our brothers and sisters of Holy Trinity Church. And return him home safely to us so he can once again guide Your people.
Amen. (B. Vidal)
MAY THE ALMIGHTY AND MERCIFUL LORD DIRECT MONSIGNOR KEN ON THE ROAD OF PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP TO OUR SISTER PARISH IN UGANDA. AND MAY THE ANGEL RAPHAEL BE HIS PRESENT COMPANION ON THIS JOURNEY SO THAT OUR DEAR PASTOR MAY SAFELY RETURN HOME WITH PEACE, REFRESHMENT AND ALL JOY.
Amen (J. Stack)
Parishioners have been so kind and continue to ask if I am doing well after my recent hernia surgery. Thank you so much, but I am just fine. I had my final visit with the doctor and received the “all clear” – no restrictions, except that I have to be careful about lifting. He said that I am fine physically, but psychology was beyond his area of competence!Read More

Ken, now coming in the form of an email. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY...IT IS A SCAM! Attached is a photo of the actual email received by a St. Mary's Parishioner.Read More
