Altar Services

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…”
                                                                                           — Mark 10:45

Together We Serve God - Saint Mary Parish Altar Server program is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our Catholic religion and to become more involved in our parish community.
