ORDINARY HOLINESS: God's Call, Our Response

All young adults (ages 18-30) are invited to join us for a series of talks at Saint Mary Church (9505 Gayton Road, Henrico) starting on July 27th. The goal of this series is to explore the universal call to live a holy life in Christ. Each week, the speakers will share how they have said “yes” to a variety of vocations including the calls to marriage, parenthood, priesthood, and celibacy. Ordinary Holiness will begin with dinner at 7:00 pm, followed by the presentation from 7:30-9:00 pm. This series is sponsored by the Office for Evangelization and Saint Mary Parish.

 

Amoris Laetitia

On April 8, 2016 the Holy Father released his latest Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love: On Love in the Family) which is based on the work of the Synods held in October of both 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Help feed the hungry

Our food pantry is in desperate need of food donations. Please bring non-perishable food items to mass or by the Parish Center. Our social justice ministry oversees the distribution to various individuals and families in our parish and the surrounding community. We are also in need of meatloaves and brownies which are sent to the Salvation Army Shelter downtown. Please bring both items frozen to the Parish Center.

Children's Rosary Group Continues

On the first Saturday of every month, all parishioners are invited to pray the rosary, especially children ages 4-14, who will be invited to lead the prayer.  We gather in Classrooms C/D at 4pm.  No experience or materials needed—we will provide everything!  (And don’t be nervous—children who don’t want to read out loud won’t be forced to!)     For more info, contact Joan Nelson.
