Please call us if you are interested in attending a Bible Study. Groups form as there is an interest.

Family Faith Formation 

Learning about the Catholic faith and coming to be in relationship with Jesus through the Church is a lifelong adventure. At Saint Mary's, parents and children attend a monthly session and parents share the faith at home with bishop-approved materials that we provide.
