St. Mary’s is participating in the Diocesan Evangelization Plan ... this first year - of five -is focused on Personal Encounters with Jesus Christ. Please share your story!
Send to Barbara MacDonald, email@example.com, or drop it in one of envelopes in the Narthex. It could be a simple encounter with Jesus, a mini-miracle or a magnificent one. Your fellow parishioners would love to hear yours. As received, these personal encounters will be published in the Bulletin, and later, a Christmas & Easter gift for visitors.
