Sunday Morning Offerings


Confirmation is offered each year for eighth graders.  The course spans the school year, and a confirmation service is typically held at St. Mary’s in the spring.  Contact the Director of Youth Ministries, Matt Rawls for more information or to inquire about registering.

High School Sunday School

New offering for students in grades 9-12 during the 10 a.m. education hour! Meet in the Library for a weekly Sunday School.


Youth Group

The St. Mary’s youth group meets regularly on Sunday and Wednesday evenings for food, fellowship, and fun.  Sometimes the plans are outrageous–like visits to a huge trampoline park or to mission fields–and sometimes they are more low-key–like pizza hangouts–but they’re always a good time! Contact the Director of Youth Ministries, Matt Rawls for more information.

  • Middle School Youth Group – first and third Sundays at 4:30 p.m.
  • High School Youth Group – first and third Sundays at 6:30 p.m.

Parish Youth Ministries (PYM) Shrine Mont Weekends

PYM offers three retreat weekends at Shrine Mont. Each begins on a Friday evening (registration generally begins at about 7 p.m., with the opening session beginning after dinner), and ends by about 11 a.m. on Sunday morning. Around 200 youth from around the Diocese come together for a weekend of fun, games, singing, worship, Bible study, and time in nature. Best of all, the weekend is led by an amazing group of high school students called PYM’ers.
