Welcome to St. Mary's Catholic Church

 

* A NOTE ABOUT VIEWING WEEKLY BULLETINS ON THE WEBSITE *

Some parishioners are having trouble viewing the 2020 bulletins on this website.  If you are still seeing 2019 bulletins, your browser is most likely showing a cached page.  To fix this, please try doing a total refresh of your browser by holding the control button and clicking F5.  If this still does not fix the problem, click on Parish Life, then Bulletin, then View All Collections, and you should be able to scroll to the 2020 Bulletins.  OR click here


St. Mary's Parish is a Christ-centered family which welcomes all members to continue their spiritual growth and religious education and to use their individual talents to assume shared responsibility for service and fellowship to our community.

Welcome to the St. Mary's Parish website.  It is our hope that through these pages, all our visitors will be given a window into the life of a vibrant, active, inclusive and faith-filled community.  As the pastor of St. Mary's, I have the great joy of witnessing the many ways our faith community prays together and takes an active role in being an outward sign of Christ in the local community.  Regardless of whether you have been a member of St. Mary's for many years, you are new to our community, or you are just stopping in for a visit, please know that you are welcome here.  Take some time to explore the content of our website and learn more about St Mary's Parish.  We are always happy to see new faces, so if you would like to stop by and visit our parish, it would be a blessing for us to meet you.

All parishioners will receive a mailing from the Diocese of Joliet this month about the 2020 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal.  Our annual appeal is vitally important to not only the diocese, but also to our parish as well.  The CMAA supports 30 ministries that benefit every parish and allow us all to Be Kind and Merciful to the most vulnerable in our community. 

Our parish's goal for the 2020 CMAA is $40,200.00 and 70% of any amount we raise over our goal will be returned to us.  This is a great opportunity for our parish!  Please review the materials, and then prayerfully reflect on your gift to this year's annual appeal.

RE NEWS

*Due to Fr. Tuan being gone and his desire to be with our 2nd graders for their Sacrament of Reconciliation, we will be postponing the Sacrament until Fr. Tuan comes back.  We will keep you updated when planning the new date.

*Our 8th graders will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation on Friday, February 7th at St. Ann's in Channahon, along with their Confirmation class.  Please keep them all in your prayers. 

*The TOTUS TUUS program will be back at St. Mary's from July 25th until July 31st.  There are 2 programs:  Grades 1-6 will meet during the day Monday through Friday, and Grades 7-12 will meet in the evenings from Sunday until Thursday.  More information and registration details coming soon!

WHAT IS TOTUS TUUS?

Totus Tuus is Latin for Totally Yours, named after St. John Paul II's papal motto.  It is a fun and energetic parish-based summer catechetical program for grades 1-12.  Totus Tuus gathers together college students and seminarians from across the United States onto teaching teams of four, in order to train them and send them out on the road to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.  The teachers' youthfulness, energy, and ability to witness to the Faith, make them particularly effective with children and young adults.
