Celebrate The Season Of Advent At St. Mary’s

The weekend of December 5-6, 2015, in conjunction with the Second Sunday of Advent, will be a very busy one here at St. Mary’s. In preparation for Christmas, we will host a “Hospitality Weekend.” Please plan to stay around after the Masses that weekend to enjoy the company of your fellow parishioners and to enjoy some light refreshments. In addition, representatives from our School Development group will be on hand to sell gift cards for all of your favorite stores and restaurants. The cards not only make great, and easy to buy stocking stuffers, but the sales are also critical in the financing of our Catholic School!

On Saturday, December 5th come early and stay late! A Holiday Craft and Vendor Fair will run from 9:00 am until 7:30 pm in Marian Hall. To reserve a table for wares, please email Amy Caligiuri at

If you have a young child, make a reservation for the “Breakfast with Santa” at 10:00 am in Marian Hall, featuring homemade pancakes, crafts, games, and raffles. Contact or

You will have a chance to memorialize a loved one by stopping at the table with the Luminaria information in Marian Hall on December 5th & 6th. Each Christmas Eve we line our driveways with these festive lights. This project benefits our Appalachia project.

Stop over to our Parish School after your visit at Marian Hall for our St. Mary’s School Open House. We will be open on Saturday, December 5, 2015 from 11:00 am until 5:30 pm. Visit with our new Principal, Mrs. Judy Riegelnegg and learn about all the exciting plans for our school’s present and future!

To top it off, come back to St. Mary’s for the Annual Lessons and Carols presented on Sunday evening, December 6th at 6:30 pm presented by our extraordinary music ministry. You will have the opportunity to hear the beautiful choral and instrumental music of the Advent and Christmas seasons interspersed with the inspirational message of the Scriptures.

Open School Registration

If you are looking for a quality Catholic Education, our school is top notch! You will find forms and information here.

Registration is Always Open!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family?  “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family — not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get the mailings that we send to all registered homes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
