A Special Thanksgivng Mass, 9:30 am on November 27th

DSC03555All are invited to share in a very special Mass of thanksgiving on Thursday, November 27th at 9:30 am.  Give yourself and your turkey a break, and drink in the love and sharing of thanks and plenty with your fellow St. Mary parishioners while your turkey cooks without your opening and closing the oven door.  It has often been heard, “This is absolutely my favorite Mass of the year!”  Set aside a bit of time on this day of blessings to share a very special tradition with your family members and your church family.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

DSC03768The 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 $52,000 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.
