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.

Lent Begins
Why not make a commitment to pray 10 minutes each day? Use the Living the Eucharist daily prayer book to reach this goal. Consider daily Mass, Friday Stations and daily Bible readings for additional prayer time. (Today is a good day to begin, if you haven't already...) Prayer is a great way to be touched by Jesus.
