Discover God’s Love for You!

St. Mary’s Kids is where children encounter Jesus for the first time. We offer formation and fun for kids in the Parish, including Children’s Liturgy, family retreats, and special events throughout the year!

Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.’

Matthew 19:14

Come to the Table: VBS

July 22-26 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

St. Mary’s Kids is bringing back Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer! A full week of enthusiastically Catholic fun for kids ages 4-12 is coming to St. Mary’s Parish from July 22nd-26th. Each day, VBS will run from 9am-12pm at St. Mary’s Parish, 100 Young Street.

Children’s Liturgy

St. Mary’s Kids offers Children’s Liturgy on certain Sundays at the 9:00 AM Mass. Our trained instructors will teach the lessons from the readings and the Gospel using fun, age-appropriate activities. Check out our upcoming events to see when Children’s Liturgy will be offered next.


Meet Our Family Minister

My name is Renée and I’ve been a parishioner at St. Mary’s since I was a teenager. I currently am a stay-at-home mom of three boys, but previously worked as a volunteer coordinator, and before that, an elementary teacher. I am excited to help build and foster a community life for our parish families. Our Church is our home, and I hope it can be a place where family life can be supported and nurtured in Christ.
