St. Mary Student Parish honors our patron Mary on her Feast Day by gathering for prayer and serving those in need.
“If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others,
if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little,
we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much.”
Mass: 10:00 AM
Lunch: A light lunch of soup and salad will be provided at St. Mary.
Volunteer Service: Noon – 4:00 PM
REGISTER HERE! Registration ends Sunday, December 3.
