At the center of our Christian Life is the Mass, and at the end of Mass, we are called to Go Forth. Your St. Mary's Groups allow you to go forth and continue living our Catholic Faith outside of the church.
If you see a need in the parish, start your own group! If you know what kind of group you want to start, where you want to meet, and who you want to invite, please fill out this application form below.
