St. Mary's parish is a strong cultural community, with parishioners devoted to their faith. We are blessed to live our faith, praise the Lord in our own language and to preserve our Polish identity.

With the support we receive from our Family of Faith campaign we will re-establish our St. Vincent de Paul Society. We recognize that a group of people in our community have limited economic means, and we would like to assist them. We will also start a Catholic Women's League (CWL) at our parish in order to provide an organized and integrated approach to women's ministry.

We have a group of talented children and youth and their spiritual development is a key priority for us as parishioners and parents. We will create a choir program for the children and youth.

Our church has many important and necessary capital projects that we will be pursuing in the coming years.  We will need to establish our priorities as we move forward with the following projects as funds become available:

  • Replace the shingles on our 30-year old roof;
  • Upgrade our electrical wiring;
  • Renovate our parish altar, which has been severely destroyed by wood-boring beetles;
  • Improve our church lighting and repair our stained glass windows in order to save on heating costs and electricity.

We look forward to this exciting phase of our parish and archdiocese, remembering that we are family - brothers and sisters in Christ!
