St Mary's Oktoberfest    Mark your calendars NOW!

Bishop Scharfenberger will be at St. Mary’s on December 5th

Father Rosson has announced that our new bishop, Bishop Edward Scharfenberger will be with us at St. Mary’s Church on Friday, December 5, 2014, for our parish’s Confirmation Mass.  All are urged to mark this on your calendars and plan to attend, so that we can extend a very warm parish welcome to Bishop Scharfenberger.

Be sure to view our “Photo Galleries”!

Annual Easter Appeal continues with our Parish as its focus

DSC03768

The Annual Easter Appeal  of St. Mary’s, which supports the Bishop’s Appeal for the Diocese of Albany, needs everyone’s help.  We have reached our assessment of $51,000 in donations and pledges,  but now, having reached our stated goal, what is donated returns to help our local Saint Mary’s in charitable works.   This includes the Religious Education Program of St. Mary’s,  the Youth Program,  the Annual Food Drives, etc.. If you have not  made a contribution to the Annual Easter Appeal yet – please do so today.  You can either mail a check payable to “The Bishop’s Appeal” directly to our church, drop it in the collection basket or donate directly through the Albany Diocese’ website at www.thebishopsappeal.org. THANK YOU!

Please Pray for The Souls of Our Faithfully Departed
