    • Just One Item Campaign

      Our Just One Item Campaign occurs on the third weekend of each month. If EVERYONE who worships at Old St. Mary’s brings just one roll of toilet paper, or bar of soap, or tube of toothpaste, or container of deodorant, etc., we can help so many in need. When shopping, think about purchasing something “extra” for our neighbors at St. James.  Look for sales at Walgreen’s, Target, OSCO, or the Dollar Store.  For the business travelers in our parish, we will always keep a basket under our table in the Commons for your convenience.


      This weekend, November 17/18, there is a special collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. There will be special envelopes in the pews which you can use to make a donation. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

    • Virtue and Vice: And Other Conversations that Matter

      Join fellow young adults after the 6 PM Mass on Sunday, November 18, at Vice Brewing down the street for good conversation over brownies and a drink, if you’d like. We can walk over together after Mass, or just meet us there a few minutes after 7 PM, if you go to a different Mass.
