Special News

As our Friars prepare to depart St. Mary's and embrace a new adventure in the new Our Lady of Guadalupe OFM Province, the Parish Community of St. Mary's is celebrating many special events. Please pay attention to the Sunday Bulletin, to our Monthly Newsletter, to the Calendar on this webpage and to email updates as meeting times, locations and dates may change. 

And remember, when you see a Friar, hug a Friar! Our Secular Franciscan Community remains spiritually bonded to our Friars and Sisters. Our work continues along with our loving relationship to St. Mary's, now one hundred and twenty-three years old...!

Let us celebrate with great joy the graces bestowed on us by Christ through our loving Father Francis!
