Love of Neighbor

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”  Mark 12:30-31

Our Catholic Social Teaching reminds us that the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy are actions we can perform that extend God's compassion and mercy to those in need.  St. Mary Catholic Faith Community is committed to dignity of life issues and stands in solidarity with the listed ministry partners.
