The video celebrating Fr. Jim's Birthday & Ordination is now posted on the Mary Our Lady of Peace Facebook & YouTube pages. You can access either of these on the MOLOP website. Look under Stay In Touch then click on the Facebook or YouTube icon under Fellow Parishioners.


Beginning this month, we are conducting a comprehensive survey of our entire St. Maria Goretti and Seton Catholic family. This planning study will enable us to determine potential support for a major fundraising effort. If our faith community chooses to move forward, the study will also provide us with information to prioritize our goals, identify prospective campaign leaders and establish a realistic campaign goal.

Now, we are asking all of you to share your thoughts regarding these plans. Everyone will be receiving a mailing with details on our vision within the next few weeks. We are asking everyone to either participate in a brief interview or complete a survey. The completed mail surveys can be placed in the offertory baskets at the Masses during the month of April or mailed back to the parish office.

After all of this information is compiled by the Steier Group, our development firm, and presented to us, we will make an informed decision on how to address our needs.

We believe that this process is extremely important and we encourage all of you to participate. Your input is valuable as we plan for the future of St. Maria Goretti and Seton Catholic.

If there are any questions about this process you may contact the parish office, Camy Stone or Randy Jaminet.
