Central to our life as a community of Christians is prayer. In opening ourselves to the contemplation of God, we allow the divine to become present in our humanity.
The Eucharist — The Mass
The celebration of the Eucharist is of paramount importance to our formation as Christians and our task of sanctifying the world. At St. Mary’s, we make great effort that our Eucharistic celebrations may lead us deeper into the mystery of Christ.
Here you can find our regular Mass schedule. We also publish our weekly bulletin and update our web calendar with upcoming events, including any changes to the schedule due to holy days, funerals, or other reasons.
Ž New Liturgical Minister Schedule and Guidelines to be posted soon
If you or someone you know is unable to attend weekend Masses because of an illness, please call the parish office at 882-4813, and we will arrange to have an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist bring you communion.
We expose the Blessed Sacrament for prayer and the adoration of the faithful, in order to foster prayer and worship of Jesus.
We regularly have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Friday of the month, from just after the morning Mass, through the night, until 8 a.m. on Saturday morning. You are welcome to “drop in.” The Blessed Sacrament is reposed at 8 am, with solemn benediction if the priest or deacon is able.
Other Prayer Events
There are many other prayer events at St. Mary’s throughout the year, including many incorporated into the meetings of our organizations and faith formation programs. Watch in the bulletin and on our website for other opportunities!
The church is regularly open, Sunday to Friday, from approximately 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. In winter, the church may be closed a little earlier, at approximately 6 p.m.. On Saturdays, the church is open from 8 a.m. until approximately 6:30 p.m.
Anyone who would like is welcome to come into the church to pray.
