 Holy Name Province honors its partners in ministry with the Francis Medal. The Francis Medal is awarded to persons who contribute to the advancement of the values and ideals of St. Francis of Assisi. I am happy to announce that the Francis Medal will be awarded to Elkin and Gloria Vargas at a special service in the church on Monday, August 29, at 7:00 PM. All are welcome. After many years as parishioners of St. Mary’s, Elkin and Gloria are moving to Florida. They have been vital members in the parish and active in all kinds of ministries. Elkin is a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus, Food Pantry volunteer and a founder of our Latino Ministry. Elkin and Gloria have always been available to offer assistance to anyone who needed it, especially the newly arrived immigrants.

We are so proud to call them friends of St. Mary’s. We will miss them and we wish them the very best in this next chapter of their lives!

2016 Annual Fund
Pray   Serve    Give
Pray   Serve    Give

Greetings from St. Mary's!
I hope you are enjoying a relaxing summer!

I am very grateful to all of you for your generosity to the 2016-2017 Annual Fund! So far we have raised $177,484.00 our goal is $350,000. If you've already made a gift, thanks!

Your giving underwrites Stephen Ministry care for those in our community undergoing life’s difficulties. Highly-trained Christian Caregivers are dedicated to providing emotional and spiritual support through confidential compassionate care. Two unique offerings are our Journey With Cancer and H.E.R.O.E.S. Military Care outreach. Newly launched is “Partners in Ministry.” Parishioners “partner” with Stephen Ministers to provide for needs such as cooking meals, rides to appointments, etc. Through Stephen Ministry, Saint Mary’s is not only able to provide excellent care, free of charge to the care receiver, but also presents an opportunity for parishioners to deepen their faith, learn through acquisition of new skills and knowledge, and serve God and others through this discipleship community.
