Smile Ministry

The Smile Ministry names are in the back of the church. Please take a name and send a Fall greeting!

Do you know someone who can’t get out and needs a smile sent their way to brighten their day? Ask them if they would like to have their name put on our Smile list. They will be sent a greeting at each holiday throughout the year. Call the office to add a name to our list.

ST MARY CHURCH NEEDS EVERYONE’S HELP!

The end of the 2018-2019 fiscal year will be here soon!!
On June 30, the end of the fiscal year, the Diocese will match the amount that has been raised this year to reduce the St Mary debt.
They will match the total amount that has been raised ONLY if the money received in the weekend collections and debt envelopes meets the base amount the Diocese set at the beginning of the Debt Reduction Campaign. That amount is $156,706.
To reach that goal, we need another $17,225 contributed in the weekend collections and debt envelopes before June 30, 2019.
Thank you for your generosity.
Please keep St Mary Church in your prayers
as many work hard to reduce the debt.
