St. Mary’s is a vibrant parish with many opportunities to share time, talent and stewardship with fellow parishioners as well as the community at large.
We are currently in transition. Our pastor of 19 years has retired and we are preparing for a new parish leader: Priest Pastor or Parish Life Coordinator. We hope all feel welcome and urge you to get involved with any one or more of the parish programs.
Ministry includes Altar Servers (all ages), Lectors and Extra Ordinary Ministers at mass, at the hospital and/or for the home bound. Also active is our Music Ministry, Faith Formation Program, Bereavement Ministry, Money Counters, Parish Leadership Committee and new Re-Ignite Our Faith Campaign! We hope to soon have a Liturgy Committee too!
In the past, on the Sunday after Labor Day, the 11:00 AM Mass was held at Glimmerglass State Park on the edge of Otsego Lake. This beautiful ceremony is a great way to unite with friends as the summer comes to a close. Stay for an incredible BBQ feast prepared by Brian Wrubleski. This event has become a must do at St. Mary’s!!
We invite you to join us at our many events throughout the year which have included:
- St. Patrick’s Day Corn Beef Dinner
- Palm Sunday Community wide Ecumenical Celebration on Elm Street
- Easter Sunday Mass
- St. Francis Blessing of the Animals
- Parish Christmas Pageant
