To Grow and Develop our Faith through Word and Sacrament As a Parish Family, Loving each Other, Inspired by the Love of God for Us
"Love one another as I have loved you" - John 13.34
Welcome to Mary, Mother of God Parish!
As a member of our faith community, you will find that your fellow parishioners are eager to meet the spiritual and physical needs of their brothers and sisters in Christ. With that in mind, this website has been created so that you will be aware of the many programs and ministries currently being offered at Mary, Mother of God – and also that we are here for you when you need us!
Please take the time to learn about these parish organizations, all of which help make our parish the thriving center of Catholic Christianity it is today. Each of these groups welcomes new members with open arms, and I pray that you will be moved by the Holy Spirit to become involved in parish activities and continue the good work that others have begun.
Sincerely in Christ, Fr. Sean Broderick
