St. Mary’s Parish is a Roman Catholic community where everyone is welcome, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. Join us at Sunday Mass for a warm greeting, wonderful music, and inspiring teaching about the relevance of Jesus to our lives.
To worship God, proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, lead others into relationship with him and grow together as his disciples.

Vital Components of Our Parish Life
We have five parish dynamics which help us realize our vision.
Worship honors God. We look to honor God individually and as a community through worship, which includes participating in the Sunday Mass and other sacraments, as well forming the habit of a personal prayer life and seeking opportunities to worship God in our everyday lives. In our Worship, we will see a transformation in our encounter with God.
We are made for relationship. We are one family and committed to share life as brothers and sisters in Christ. In community life we strive to live out the Gospel standards to relating to one another – in love, forgiveness, honesty, encouragement, correction and support. As a community, we do life together – this includes small groups, coffee after Sunday mass, and meeting the needs of those in our community. In our Community, all are cared for and loved.
A disciple is a person who is baptized and has made a conscious decision to be in a personal relationship with Jesus and to continually learn from him. It is a way of life, not just consumption of information. We consciously and intentionally live our lives as Jesus asks us to, day by day, moment by moment. In our Discipleship, we will live daily a Christ-like way of life. It be a live lived to the full!
We believe Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life”. We respond to his call to share the good news of Jesus with others and invite a response from them. We seek ways to build relationships with others and provide opportunities for them to meet Jesus. We want to reach those who don’t know him. We exist for this purpose. In our Evangelization, our passion for Christ drives us to share Him with others; it will be fearless.
We believe that God has a purpose for each individual and has called each of us to a task that he has prepared for us. He has given us each special gifts to help us in this call. We seek to learn about individual gifts and find the place where we can best serve. In our Apostolate, we give all to the growth of the Kingdom of God.
