Welcome to St. Mary’s parish community. We are a Catholic community that believes in the transforming power of Christ’s love, and look to live it out as a community that prays, serves, eats, works, and shares each other’s struggles and joys. We hope that you with find a place here to share your gifts and grow in love with God and one another.

We have free hearing devices available for anyone who needs them. These devices hook onto your ear and are connected to all microphones in the church: the priest, the readings, and the choir.

If you don't see the devices anywhere, just mention it to Fr. Toby, Fr. Dan, or Rianne and they will bring you one.
