Attention Parishioners

Several parishioners have received phone texts and emails that look like they are from Fr. Scott's email address asking for money and/or gift cards. These are SCAMS that should be deleted ASAP. Please make all donations through the normal approved methods as listed at www.stmaryp.org/donate.

Welcome

Thank you for visiting the St. Mary Parish website. St. Mary is a community that glorifies God through its faithfulness to Roman Catholic teachings, to adoration, outreach, festivities, and education. We look forward to seeing you at our daily and Sunday liturgies and invite you to participate in the sacraments, events, and ministries offered through this diverse Catholic community.

St. Mary is now offering public Masses with adherence to Diocesan guidelines of a maximum of 100 persons permitted to attend Mass in both the church and in the Parish Center Hall (for Sunday overflow Masses). Physical distancing and face masks will be followed in both locations.

Masses will continue to be Livestreamed while they are being celebrated, and the videos of them are available for viewing afterward. Click on the image above to watch the Livestreamed Masses. See below for Mass times.

Liturgical Events

Daily and Sunday Masses have resumed as PUBLIC MASSES with adherence to Diocesan and Governmental guidelines. To allow for greater numbers of people to attend Mass, daily 8 am and 6 pm Masses, all Saturday Masses, and all normal Sunday Masses will be celebrated outside. Daily 12 noon and 6 pm Masses, and additional Sunday Masses at 10 am and 1 pm will be celebrated privately and Livestreamed.

Outdoor Masses will be held on the grassy area behind the Parish Center. We ask that people adhere to the physical distancing guidelines, and to bring your own chairs and umbrellas. The Masses celebrated in the church will continue to be Livestreamed, however the Masses held outside will not be Livestreamed.

Remember - The Bishop has only removed the obligation of physical attendance, but no one can dispense with the requirement handed down by God to "Keep Holy the Day of the Lord". And so, you are still required to participate in the Mass on Sundays.
