Welcome to Our Parish
What is RCIA?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process by which the Catholic Church
welcomes newcomers into our parish.
Who is the RCIA for?
Persons (over 18 years of age) who have never been baptized. Persons who were baptized in
another Christian tradition and now desire to become Catholic. Persons baptized catholic who
want to complete their sacraments through Eucharist and Confirmation. If you or someone you

SMA ST. VINCENT De PAUL
St. Vincent de Paul is a non-profit organization that helps the needy. Here at St. Mary’s we operate with a very small group of volunteers. We have several donation boxes in the front and rear of the church, but unfortunately donations are very little. Our treasury is very low since we average about $50 per month in donations and distribute approximately $500 to $600 in food vouchers per month. We also distribute boxes of food which are donated by Stop & Shop. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated. We will not be able to continue our good work without your help.
Annual Haiti Trip
In February 2017, a group of parishioners will be leaving for Haiti. The group is requesting slightly used men and women’s shoes and sneakers to bring to the people of Haiti.
Children’s shoes and sneakers will
also be accepted.
Donations can be dropped off St. Mary’s office between 9:30am and 12:00pm Monday thru Friday.
Do you have 2 hours a week that you can volunteer for a worthy cause?
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul needs you to help the poor and hungry.
If interested, please write your name
and phone number and place it in the St. Vincent de Paul boxes in the rear of the church and someone will contact you, or join us on any Thursday morning between
10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
in the lower church hall.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
