Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. (Hebrews 13:2)
To formally become parishioners of the Parish of Saint Mary attending Mass is paramount.

If your family choose to have offertory envelopes mailed to your family, please contact the parish office, so that we can record that you have elected to receive offertory envelopes.
Please be advised that loose cash offerings are not able to be tracked for a year-end tax contribution report, nor for record of mass attendance. If there is no traceable contributions for 1 year the parishioner status will be moved to "Inactive".
