St. Mary Catholic Church - Escondido

URGENT NEED! St Mary School Competition

Thanks to all for supporting us. St. Mary 6th grade science class was selected as one of the 7th finalists in the National PepsiCo Recycling Competition. We are the only Catholic school and the only school representing the West coast and Southern California region. 

What inspired us to promote awareness about recycling was our unit on ocean currents and the Great Pacific Garbage Patch; this floating pile of trash is the size of Texas! 

The competition is based off of likes and loves and ends on April 16th at 4:00 PM (PST) via Facebook. 

Here is the link to our competition; we are photo number 7; in order to receive the vote, you will need to click on our photo and like/love it.

Thanks for your consideration! Please ask your family, friends and others you know to help St. Mary School win this contest!

Additionally we were featured on the Escondido-Times Advocate; the link to that article is here:

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. 

St. Mary is offering Masses with adherence to Diocesan and Governmental guidelines. Please physically distance from others and wear face masks.

All Masses and liturgical services at St. Mary will be celebrated indoors of the church with overflow in the Parish Center, or in the grassy area behind the Parish Center until further notice.

All Masses on the Patio will be broadcast on 92.9 MHz radio for those who feel more comfortable staying in their car. To receive Communion, please leave your car and proceed to the priest, deacon or Eucharistic Minister.

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. Click the graphic below for more information on these events.

Parish Update

We are blessed to begin celebrating Masses inside the church again as long as we continue to follow physical distancing, sanitation guidelines, enforce wearing masks, and by limiting the number of people attending.

Until further notice, 250 people will be allowed in the church per Mass, with an additional 100 people in the Hall. Masses with attendances that exceed 350 people will continue to be held in the grass area behind the Parish Center. Please dress accordingly for warmth, and bring your own seating and shade.

Actualización Parroquial

Tenemos la bendición de comenzar a celebrar Misas dentro de la iglesia nuevamente siempre y cuando continuemos siguiendo las pautas de distanciamiento físico, higiene, haciendo cumplir el uso de máscaras y limitando el número de personas que asisten.

Hasta nuevo aviso, se permitirán 250 personas en la iglesia por Misa, con 100 personas adicionales en el Salón. Se seguirán celebrando misas con una asistencia que supere las 350 personas en el césped detrás del Centro Parroquial. Vístase en consecuencia para abrigarse y traiga su propio asiento y sombra.

Liturgical Events

All Masses on the Patio will be broadcast on 92.9 MHz radio for those who feel more comfortable staying in their car. To receive Communion, please leave your car and proceed to the priest, deacon or Eucharistic Minister.

The month of April is traditionally dedicated to devotion to Jesus in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. The Catholic Church teaches that the Blessed Sacrament is the real and living presence of Christ—His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity—received into our souls with every reception of Holy Communion. Our Eucharistic Lord is the source and summit of our Christian life, the ultimate proof of His infinite love for us.
