Education is the food of youth, the delight of old age, the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity, and the provocation to grace in the soul.
~ St. Augustine
Education is the primary mission of St. Mary’s Parish. It is through prayerful study and discussion of God’s creation that we come to a better understanding of God’s call. St. Mary’s School provides a daily Catholic education for preschool through eighth grade. For K-8 students who attend public school, non-denominational private school, or homeschool, St. Mary’s PSR program provides weekly religious classes. St. Mary’s Parish also supports Father McGivney Catholic High School where Fr. Dan regularly celebrates mass with the students.
Ongoing Adult Religious Education opportunities are also an important part of St. Mary’s. Through various book series, bible studies, retreats, and CRHP groups, St. Mary’s encourages reflection, prayer, and study that brings our Church family closer to God.
