Dear Parishioners,

Foundation construction work begins at St. Mary’s this Monday April 26th. Work crews will be arriving with machinery, building materials and other equipment. A small section of the parking lot will be used by the work crew for this major project.There will be no outdoor Masses next week from Monday to Friday. We will resume with outdoor Mass on Saturday at 9:00 AM. Saturday evening and Sunday Masses will be celebrated outdoors as planned.A Flocknote will be sent next week with information about the outdoor Masses for the following week.

Fr. Mark Goring, CC


Over the past year our Parish has seen tremendous growth and blessing through our technology-based ministries. Now, we need your help! St. Mary’s is looking for committed volunteers, especially young adults, who would like to be a part of our tech ministries, including sound, slides, and video. You do not need to be a techy person – just open to learning and serving.

All volunteers will be fully trained. To sign-up, send an email to Zac and John at
