Welcome to St. Mary's Catholic Church


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.

CCW News

While in this pandemic time, we have missed many family and friends' activities, and social gatherings which is important for our well being.  We are able to spiritually meet our needs through the live streaming Mass with Father Tuan.  We thank him for making this possible.

At this time each year, we also honor our CCW WOMAN OF THE YEAR.  A Mass is always held at St. Raymond's Cathedral followed by a luncheon for all of the "Women of the Year" in the diocese.

We would like to congratulate the Minooka CCW WOMAN OF THE YEAR -

Virginia Guertin

Virginia Guertin was born and raised in Chicago, married Bob in September 14, 1963. They moved to Morris in August, 1970 and became parishioners at St. Mary’s Church in Minooka. They have a son, Carl and daughter, Claudine. Bob and Virginia’s hobbies include International travel and golf.  Virginia also enjoys gardening, card and game playing.  Special interests are her membership in St. Mary’s CCW, Minooka Women’s Club, volunteering at Morris Hospital and the Helping Hands Food Pantry housed at the Minooka United Methodist Church and co-sponsored by St. Mary’s Church.  Virginia enjoys her friendship with all the ladies at the monthly CCW Meetings and volunteering at all the fundraisers and social events.  She is hoping that everything will be back to "normal" soon. 

Remember to pray, and be safe!

Love begins with us.
