ANNUAL CENSUS and PARISH APPEAL:
A mailing was sent to households on the Census and Appeal. This Census and Appeal is important to us here at Saint Mary Parish because its purpose is two-fold: One, it helps us to update our Parish records and Two, the Parish Appeal will help us to continue to maintain our 22 acres of property and 6 buildings in a manner you have come to expect and deserve. You will be happy to know that our Parish has ascertained a new Data Software Program. We are switching from Parish Data System (PDS) to Servant Keeper. Servant Keeper will allow us, on a parish level, to obtain much more information, quickly print reports and schedule lay ministers of the Mass in an efficient manner. Thank you so much for your support and cooperation.
THANKSGIVING DAY MASS:
Saint Mary Parish will celebrate Thanksgiving Day Mass on Thursday, November 22 at 9:00AM. Please bring your family to this tradition. Come to the "dinner table" of Jesus's sacrificial love. God desires us to gather around the Supper of the Lord. Begin a new tradition in your family. Remember: Eucharist is a Greek word that means Thanksgiving!
