From the handful of families in 1849 that built our beloved church, to the many families that sit in our pews in 2020, we have together supported the growth and prosperity of St. Mary’s Swormville for over 171 years!

 

 

Thank You for Your Support!

I personally want to thank our generous parishioners for responding to the letter I sent out four weeks ago outlining the financial status of St. Mary’s.

Many have responded by increasing their weekly giving, while others have sent in extra contributions. Your support of the Drive-Thru Picnic showed that the parish community is alive and well, even though the Covid pandemic has made us adapt to new ways of living our lives.
