Welcome to St. Mary Presentation's website.  We hope that this website will be a useful tool for communication both among those who are members of our church community and for those who are "just curious" about our Church and our Faith.

For your convenience and by popular request we have added an event calendar to our “Calendar and Bulletin” page.  We hope that this new feature will be helpful in avoiding time conflicts and allowing an easy way to see all the activities planned for our parish.

Schedules for the Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers can now all be found on the "Liturgy/Ministry" pages.

Feedback is always welcome - drop us a line using the “Contact Us” button above.

Called & Gifted Workshop COMING!
JOIN US Friday night (4/29) and Saturday (4/30) in APRIL…as we explore God’s vision and plan for our lives. This program, authored by Sherry Weddell and Fr. Mike Sweeney of the Catherine of Siena Institute, will guide us to …. Discover our Gifts and explore HOW God has already equipped US as BAPTIZED Catholics for a unique role through our Spiritual GIFTS (charisms). WE are all called and “gifted”, and God wants us to play the role we are given in serving Him through serving others!

Learn about the nature of our Spiritual Gifts and how they play a critical role in the mission of the Church to bring the love of the Risen Christ to the world!

Our parish presenters are: Fr. Kevin, Deacon Perry and Fran Sobieski.

SIGN UPS will be available soon in the parish hall, so that we can order and provide the materials for this workshop.

   Area Food Banks Helped by the                Knights of Columbus
As a result of the Pumpkin Pacer race which was held last October, the Knights of Columbus were able to make a generous donation to two local food banks. The proceeds from the Pacer race benefits the Greenhouse and the Loon Lake food bank. Many thanks to all who came out in the rain to participate in last October’s race!
