Featured Opportunities

You Choose!

Start out the New Year by arranging a service activity for yourself, your family and/or friends. We need help cooking (i.e. organize a chili dump), serving (here at St. Mary and at our meal sites), delivering donations, and with special projects for our ministry partners. We can customize activities to fit your schedule.

Repairers of the Breach

Thanks to all who contributed to our Souper Bowl Sunday Ministry!
Thank you for your loving generosity and support of our Souper Bowl initiative benefiting Repairers of the Breach. The soup and financial contributions will help the Repairers support many homeless individuals, many who are working hard to move their lives forward.

Your generosity helps to provide warmth and comfort to many seeking shelter from the elements and the hardships of life during these harsh winter months.

We are deeply grateful.

Many Blessings,

Debbie Kessenich

LENT 2020

A Time of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving

Lent is fast approaching. Here is the list of items we are requesting for our ministry partners as part of our traditional almsgiving. Opportunities to get involved with each ministry will be highlighted weekly. Consider offering prayer and hands-on service this Lent. Jesus calls us to LOVE the stranger in our midst. Come and see and you will grow by experiencing the faith, hope, and love of the people being accompanied by our partners.

In keeping with our Parish Mission of "Experiencing More in your Friendship with God and Others," please consider supporting our ministry partners, each week of Lent, as they continue to accompany those who need us the most.
