Youth and Family Life Around St. Mary's
Family Life Ministry
Family Life Ministry touches all aspects of family life, from single life, parenting, teens and young adults. No matter what your vocation is in life you touch the heart and souls of others around you. We need each person in our community to help us raise the next generation of faith-filled Christians.
Every Catholic of every age needs useful resources and continuing education in our Catholic faith.
Strong Catholic Families leads us to have Strong Catholic Youth. Our parish wants to help you in passing along the Catholic faith. We have resources, parent helps, internet links and booklets to aid you in your parenting! We provide books, flyers and other resources in the Maria room, near the entrance to Church. Please feel free to take and use these free resources for your family
