Our April Centennial Celebration was a professional live production of Maximilian: Saint of Auschwitz. It was an inspiring dramatic portrayal, filled with all the elements of professional theater, yet striking in its simplicity. In June the Centennial Celebration will continue with the Corpus Christi procession followed by a spaghetti dinner. More information will be coming on this topic!

The Diocesan Services Appeal (DSA) is now in progress. DSA this year focuses on the vision and direction provided by our diocesan Offices of Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry. Our gifts support the work of these vital ministries as well as others. The St. Mary dollar goal is $54,967. Every family is requested to participate - no gift is too small or too large! Envelopes are available in church and may be dropped in the collection basket or dropped off in the Parish Office. Please participate as you are able. Fifty cents of every dollar above the parish goal will be returned to the parish to be used for our needs.
