Your Parish Retreat Team, Leaders of ministries to children and youth, Stewardship Committee, Finance Committee, various Buildings & Grounds ministries, Outreach, Community Life, Adult Formation, vestry, Music Ministry and others are getting geared up for the fall - lots of great planning is happening and there is so much to celebrate! All of these ministries, in one way or another, help to nourish our souls and strengthen our relationships with Christ and one another.

Youth Group Mission Trip
The 2016 St. Mary's Youth Mission Trip under the leadership of Kim and Pete Jankowiak and Assistant Chaperone Meghan Hyland, traveled to Mt. Hope, West Virginia from July 10-16 . Our nine youth group members along with the Team Effort organization experienced service work, and daily evening devotions On their free day, they went whitewater rafting!
St Mary's Family Sunday School
A one hour class for kids and their parents. Kids then take some of the prominent roles during the 10:00 mass. First lesson was on the Lord's Prayer. Parents like this format and are able to learn along with their children (and perhaps teach them a bit, too). This is good family time on a Sunday morning. The first Sunday of every month is Family Sunday School. Teachers are parish member Sarah Beneker and Fr. Scott
