This Sunday and Tuesday are the final classes for our Religious Education school year for Grades K-8. For the past eight months, our students have been learning about our Catholic Faith and Traditions from our wonderful staff of volunteer catechists.
Here is quick rundown of our program:
443 Students in Grades K-8
245 Returning Families
75 New Families in Religious Education
88 First Communion Children
58 Confirmation Candidates
40 Volunteer Catechists
15 Youth Aides
So what do all these numbers mean? I believe they mean, we have a great opportunity to share our faith with our young people so that they can receive the Good News of Christ in their lives. I believe that these numbers also mean that there is a true hunger for faith, a thirst for understanding, and a desire for living a life of meaning. I also believe that these numbers mean that we are truly blessed at St. Mary's. It is our sincere hope that we can be a welcoming and caring parish community where all people experience Christ's love, joy and peace.

We hope that you and your family had a very blessed and joyful Easter!!! In case you were unable to join us for the Triduum or Easter Sunday, we thought that we would share some highlights with you.
|Fr. Tom washes the feet of 12 members of our Church as a |
remembrance of Christ washing the feet of the disciples at the Last Supper.
|The Altar of Repose where the Holy Eucharist is placed after the Eucharistic procession on Holy Thursday. Many people visited our church that evening as is tradition.|
|High School members of our parish recreate and led a reflection of the Stations of the Cross. The Living Stations of the Cross were accompanied by the singing talents of our Treble Choir led by Bruce Mauro.|
Holy Saturday - Easter Vigil
Fr. Rich lights the Paschal Candle from the new fire outside of the church.
The candle was then carried in to the darkened church and the Light of Christ was distributed to all in attendance.
