Our Mission

The Mission of the Church of St. Mary is to provide a Catholic environment that fosters a warm Christian atmosphere of welcome and prayer for all generations.

We serve one another in our community through the Sacraments, education and stewardship. This enables all to grow in their relationship with God, our parish, and the surrounding communities.
