If you have experienced the death of a loved one, we, the pastoral staff at St. Mary's & Assumption Catholic Churches; would like to express our sincere sympathies to you and your family. Our Catholic faith teaches us, through the resurrection of Jesus, to mourn with great hope. Still, grieving the death of a loved one is a traumatic experience that takes time and must be fully processed. When we grieve, no one can understand the depth of our loss, but please know that you are not alone. We are here to help you prepare for the next few days leading up to the funeral liturgy, as well as support you as your mourn in the weeks and months ahead.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

“We would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep”

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14


The mission of St. Mary's Parish is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ by worshiping God in word and Sacrament.

We provide on-going opportunities for growth in the Catholic Faith so that the Risen Christ may become more real for each one of us, enabling us to go forth and be leaven in society.
