  • harvest fest

    Harvest Fest is the parish's main social and fundraising event. The harvest theme recognizes and honors the rural origins and culture of Saint Mary's. Inviting people of all ages, Harvest Fest celebrates and strengthens the bonds of our parish community through the sharing of food, drink and entertainment while also raising funds to help sustain the mission of Saint Mary of the Annunciation.

  • Hospitality weekends

    Hospitality Weekends offer Saint Mary parishioners and guests time to enjoy refreshments and good conversation. Every second weekend of the month, various ministries host Hospitality Weekend by providing coffee, donuts, juice and sweet treats in a welcoming spirit after all masses. We invite you to join us in the Narthex for food and fellowship!

  • LADIES tea

    Ladies Tea, held annually, is a unique opportunity for the women of our parish to gather together for a morning of prayer and fellowship. While enjoying tea and fellowship with one another, the women hear from a guest speaker each year.

  • Mother / daughter tea

    The annual tea is for girls in grades 4 - 6 and their mothers. The program has three main goals: it educates girls on the physical and emotional changes that take place in the adolescent years in a gentle Christian environment; it helps open lines of communication between mothers and daughters on topics that can be difficult to discuss; it also lays the groundwork for chastity education by teaching girls to understand and respect their own bodies and the amazing gift of their fertility.

  • Pasta party

    Held annually, the Pasta Party is one the main fundraisers for our parish Saint Vincent de Paul Society. This is a great opportunity for parishioners of all ages to enjoy fellowship with one another while enjoying some delicious Italian cuisine!

  • POTLUCK & GAME NIGHTS

    Held about four times a year, the Parish Potluck and Game Nights are a great way to enjoy fellowship with other parishioners of all ages. Bring your favorite board or card game and a dish to share and come join in the fun!
