St. Mary’s Parish wishes to extend an invitation to those who are searching for a way to return to the practice of their Catholic Faith. The Holy Spirit is working in all of our lives and may be prodding you to renew your faith.
If you find yourself thinking about your faith and wanting to COME HOME, we are here to guide you on your journey. There are several ways for you to do this:
Among a variety of Bible study sessions our Parish offers are: Celebrating the Word of God – studying and reflecting on Sundays’ scripture readings, studying the specific books of the Bible like the Gospel of Luke this year, and focusing on different themes through the scripture.
Study descriptions and other details always appear in the Bulletin.
Father Shawn Hughes welcomes new requests or suggestions in this matter.
Parishioners who are confined to their houses, either temporally or permanently, may of course request a priest or pastoral associate to visit them. They may also ask to be brought the Blessed Sacrament. This is normally done on the first Friday and the third Sunday of each month.
If you or one of your family members are ill at home and would like to receive Holy Communion, or would like a home visit please contact Ann Lyng.
There is a group of volunteers who assist with the large task of hospital visitations. If you are interested in joining their number, call Fr Hughes.
