The Epiphany of the Lord

“Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh." (Matthew 2:11)
The image of the Magi kneeling before the infant Jesus and opening their treasure chests for Him is an image that we should all try to follow each day. In gratitude for all that we have been given, we are called to generously share all of our gifts, not just the ones we pick and choose. God wants us to be generous with everything, but especially that one thing that means the most to us.

Please stop by the Parish Hall to learn more about the work and support this ministry provides for organizations such as IHN, Days for Girls, WARM, Dismas House, Visitation House, Jeremiah’s Inn and many others.
Please visit our display tables for information as well as fun giveaways and tasty goodies! All are welcome!
The St. Mary Social Justice Ministry consists of over 30 active members and hundreds of parishioners who share their time, talent, and treasure.
Our mission is to engage the entire community of St. Mary’s Parish in the work of charity and justice in the spirit of the gospels and in the light of Catholic social teaching. Many of our activities are designed to alleviate the effects of injustice. As these activities deepen our understanding of the problems, we hope to engage the community in actions that address root causes. We strive to use every dimension of parish life—liturgy, communications, speakers, and opportunities for service— to build awareness, express love and concern, and make a difference.
