To Grow and Develop our Faith through Word and Sacrament As a Parish Family, Loving each Other, Inspired by the Love of God for Us.
"Love one another as I have loved you." John 13:34
Welcome to Mary, Mother of God Parish
This is a flourishing, youthful, vibrant parish, where we come together as a family to give glory to God. We ask for the guidance and protection of the Holy Spirit, and the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God to whom our church is dedicated, and also the intercession of the Saints who are our examplars and models.
Everybody can find a home here from the very young to the very old and all in between.
Check out our Ministries and Parish Life and maybe find what you can do for and with our family.
To join please contact the Parish Office and make an appointment to register.
Sincerely in Christ, Fr. Sean Broderick
