No matter what your present or past status in the Catholic Church
No matter what your current family or marital situation
No matter what your past of present religious affiliation
No matter what your personal history,

Saint Mary Our Lady of Grace.
In the words of Saint Francis of Assisi,
"May the Lord give you peace."

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament In this Year of Faith, we will begin to celebrate in reverential silence and adoration before our Blessed Lord. The parish will offer Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Wednesday of the month throughout the year to begin immediately following the 12:10 Mass and conclude at 2PM. During this time of adoration there must be at least two adorers in the church at all times, as the exposed Blessed Sacrament can never be left unattended.
Please Note: Those wishing to celebrate the communal sacraments (Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, and Matrimony), but who do not regularly worship with our parish community, must first meet with one of the friars or staff. In keeping with Church law, in some situations, they may encounter a delay or postponement of the sacrament.
