St. Mary Parish is a vibrant catholic community, guided by the Holy Spirit and centered on the Eucharist. With the welcoming and accepting heart of Jesus Christ, we serve, we evangelize, and we continue to learn and grow in our faith.


Please join us for Mass on Thanksgiving morning at 10 am in church. St. Vincent de Paul will be collecting canned goods and food for the Christmas baskets that will be delivered to the families receiving gifts from the Giving Trees (that will be in the back of church). We would love to welcome you and your loved ones to our parish celebration of God's goodness, mercy and love. And from all of us to you ~ may you and your loved ones have a blessed Thanksgiving! 




Thanksgiving Table Prayer
O Gracious God, we give you thanks for your overflowing generosity to us. Thank you for the blessings of the food we eat and especially for this feast today. Thank you for our home and family and friends, especially for the presence of those gathered here. Thank you for our health, our work and our play. Please send help to those who are hungry, alone, sick and suffering war and violence. Open our hearts to your love. We ask your blessing through Christ your son. Amen.
