At its heart, the Eucharist is a sacrament of communion, bringing us closer to God and to our brother and sisters in the Body of Christ. If we live the fruits of the Eucharist in our daily lives, we will fill our families and our communities with the life-giving qualities that the Liturgy brings: hospitality, concern for the poor and vulnerable, self-offering, and thanksgiving.

At St. Mary’s, our Sunday liturgies are celebrated in English with some bilingual music in English and Spanish. On some occasions, masses may be celebrated with a greater bilingual emphasis or entirely in Spanish, such as the celebrations for Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12th or for weddings and funerals at the request of the family.
