    Join the Parish Wide Study Beginning Ash Wednesday

    St. Mary’s will embark on a parish-wide study using Formed. The study will follow the familiar format of video presentation, reflection and small group discussion. There are three ways to participate in the parish wide study:
    • In a small group—If you are part of a group, your leader will have materials. If you would like to join a group, sign up to get connected to one.
    • In an online discussion group—If it’s tough to commit to a regular weekly time, you can join other parishioners on the St. Mary’s Formed community page for discussion. This way you participate at your own pace.
    • In a larger community—Join other parishioners at the church Saturdays at 4:00 before Mass beginning March 16.
    Make a plan to join as a community in our first parish-wide study. Each week, Fr. Talbot will reflect on the study theme during Mass. Get more information and sign up beginning February 24th.
  • Senior Mass and Lunch – Thursday, February 28
    The following is the menu for the lunch: Chicken Ala King in a puff pastry shell with candied carrots, salad and dessert.
    Thursday, February 28 at 11:00 AM at the church. Please RSVP by February 22 by calling the parish office 651-429-7771 or sign-up at the Welcome Desk in the Gathering Space. This is a great event for prayer, conversation and fun!
