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:

 

  1. Continue to pray and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance.
  2. Contact St. Mary’s to talk to one of the priests, deacons or to Father Shawn Hughes, Rector at 546-5521. ext. 4

What Welcome Home Does Not Promise

  1. A smooth road from now on.
  2. An end to all of your problems.
  3. A life full of happiness and sunshine.

What Welcome Home Does Promise

  1. A Jesus who is full of love and compassion.
  2. A Jesus who will listen to your troubles and work with you on your JOURNEY.
  3. A congregation of Christian brothers and sisters to pray and support you on your journey.
  4. The Sacraments of the Church to nourish you.
  5. The most precious gift of all: RECONCILIATION for a new beginning, the HOLY EUCHARIST to re-unite you with YOUR JESUS.
