 “A Welcoming Catholic Community promoting our faith, sharing our gifts, and serving all, in the name of Jesus Christ.”

WELCOME

Welcome to Saint Mary Parish! As the pastor, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our parish website. The parish of Saint Mary’s is a vibrant community of faith that seeks to know Jesus by bearing witness to his presence in the world and participating in the Mission to spread the Gospel, the Good News. That is our baptismal call and sharing it should bring us immense hope and joy.

There are many “ministries” and ways that our parishioners can give and receive. It is my sincere hope that as you get to know the community, you will be moved by the Spirit to find a way to “fit in” and make yourself at home. If you are new to Saint Mary’s and would like to register as a new parishioner, please click “registration” to fill out the form or to print a registration form that you can mail in, we will respond in writing. You can also pick up a registration form at the main entrance of the church should you wish to register in that fashion.

If there is any way that I might assist you or if you have any questions or concerns, I would encourage you to seek me out or any member of the parish staff. I am only a phone call or an “email” away and serving the needs of this portion of God’s Vineyard brings me great joy.

Solar Update

Those driving on Dartmouth Street this past Monday might have been slightly inconvenienced
by the large Eversource trucks that were parked inthe street and then on a property. Well, thank you
for your patience but those trucks were here so that Eversource could switch out the old transformers
so that they can connect to the grid so that we can start generating our own electricity. I’m grateful
that we are yet another step closer to making going green that much closer!

Beautiful Mercy Challenge

 This past Holy year of Mercy, Pope Francis encourages us to open our hearts to our brothers and sisters who are suffering by answering God’s call to know and serve people in need in loving and compassionate ways.

What a beautiful challenge this is for us all!

For the next several months St. Mary’s Youth Ministry and
the Parish will be dedicating a month to each of the 7
Corporal Works of Mercy.

FEBRUARY – GIVE DRINK TO THE THIRSTY

MARCH – FEED THE HUNGRY

APRIL – SHELTER THE HOMELESS
