Celebrate May, the Month of Mary

May is traditionally known as the Month of Mary and includes a focus on her life, her gifts, and the many ways we can both honor her and ask for her intercession. Here are suggestions (PDF) for celebrating Mary with your family at home.

Pope Francis has asked all Catholics to pray to her in this time of pandemic. The link to both his letter and the two prayers is here: http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/letters/2020/documents/papa-francesco_20200425_lettera-mesedimaggio.html

All classes and events are canceled at this time.

Classes are offered for all age groups from Kindergarten through High School. Children wishing to make the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation must attend classes to prepare them for celebrating these sacraments. Students learn about their faith and do community service projects to help those less fortunate. Please contact the Faith Formation Office at
