Looking Forward to CCD

Our CCD program at St. Mary’s needs your help in planning for the new school year. If your child will be entering 1stor is older but will be new to our program, we would like to know. We are trying to organize our classes and teachers needed. At this time we are also in need of teachers. Please pray about this calling, we need you!! Please contact SandyMadland@frontier.com 608-393-2515 for new students or to talk about joining our teaching staff.

Heads Up!

Now that the country is getting back to a new normal, we at St. Mary’s have made the decision to make the transition to using hymnals. Beginning the weekend of August 7 & 8, hymnals will be available at the back of church, as well as worship aids. If you desire a hymnal, please pick one up before Mass, but please return it to the table as you leave.

A lot of our children’s books seemed to have grown legs and run away! We know sometimes things happen where books get thrown into bags and taken home accidentally, so if you notice any that belong to St. Mary’s, please return them to the shelf in the vestibule so other children can enjoy them too. Thank you and please use and enjoy the books, but try to remember to put them back after Mass.
