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

St Mary parishioners pray, care and connect in ways that make a difference in our parish, community and world. We strive to be Christ’s hands and feet in order to make a difference in the lives our parish community is privileged to accompany through long standing ministry partners relationships that help us to both serve and be served.

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 the four dignity of life issues identified below and stands in solidarity with the listed ministry partners.
