Private prayer offers the opportunity to be in our Chapel to pray alone. Please do not organize any group prayer as we are trying to respect the CDC guidelines of the number of people recommended to gather at one time.

A few kind reminders should you decide to attend Private Prayer in the Chapel:

  • Please stay home if you are feeling ill.
  • Consider the recommended social distancing for wellness of 6′ when choosing where to sit.
  • Older adults and those with underlying health conditions are particularly vulnerable, and should refrain from even small gathering spaces.
  • Sanitize your hands prior to entering and leaving the Chapel. Hand sanitizer dispensers are provided.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. This is a good practice anytime, anywhere!

COMMITMENT TO PARISH LIFE

Commitment to Parish Life (CPL)  was introduced in 2011 to assist with long-term planning and encourage parishioners to participate in the rich ministry life of St. Mary’s.  There are hundreds of opportunities for involvement that can lead you closer to Christ  – regardless of how much time you have to give.

CPL also affords each of us the opportunity to decide on an appropriate level of sustained offertory support and volunteerism, and fulfill our financial commitment in a convenient annual, semi-annual, quarterly, monthly or weekly method.  Highlights of CPL:

 –      Opportunity for parishioners to become more active in the life and ministries of the parish.

–       Invitation to consider a sustained offertory commitment in a convenient format.

–       Opportunities for our parish to plan strategically to address present and future challenges.

Through sustained offertory and enhanced ministry, St. Mary’s Parish becomes a more vital, vibrant and engaged faith community.  Please consider our shared commitment to one another as a parish family by embracing this message of renewed support and fully participate in our Commitment to Parish Life Program.
