As our world faces uncertain and challenging times, we at St. Mary’s want our parishioners and friends to know that we are here for you. At the present time, and until further notice, the church, building, and office are open during weekday business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.). We invite all who find a need, to stop in, light a candle, and spend some time in God’s House, praying or simply spending a few quiet moments away from the news and the outside world. If you have questions or concerns, please give us a call, 612.825.9595.

Prayer

Until further notice, services at St. Mary’s, and at houses of worship around the world, are suspended.

We are live-streaming our services and programs on our Facebook page and many of our services are being recorded and available on our YouTube page. We encourage everyone to subscribe! Videos of services, story time for young kids, messages from the clergy, and Fr. Anthony’s funeral are found there.

Since we are not able to attend in-person worship, we are offering and encouraging some options for prayer at home, and our prayers should become more frequent and more fervent.

Worship resources are found on the Stay Connected page.

Benevolence

Saint Mary’s parishioners are very generous donors to the weekly food shelf collections. Now, more than ever, the need is even greater. Please don’t forget about the needy in our community. You can bring bags of packaged or canned food to St. Mary’s during weekday business hours or mail a contribution to any of the food shelves we support. A list of those organizations is on the Stay Connected page.

Stewardship

We invite all who are able to please continue your financial commitment to St. Mary’s during this difficult time.

Even though our in-person worship and activities are suspended for the time being, we still have financial obligations to fulfill such as utility bills, staff salaries, our Archdiocesan stewardship, and building maintenance, among a number of other things.
