Happy New Year!
There is a group called "RCIA" that meets every Friday from 3-4:30 pm at the Loreto House. It's a program that helps people prepare to come into the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil. For more information, contact Ann Kolb at the rectory at 548-1616.
All the information you need to create an account is on the ParishSoft & My Home Church page tab above. If you have any problems or questions, call the rectory at 548-1616. Our staff will be happy to help you.
We are pleased to announce that St. Mary's Church now provides online giving through software called ParishSoft Giving. This is a convenient and safe way to make a one-time or recurring donation. Getting started is easy- just click the link below and follow instructions for first time user. When you participate, your gift will transfer directly into the parish bank account. And you won't have to remember to write a check or stop by the ATM on Sundays! If you still want to place something in the offertory basket, just write "I gave online" on your church envelope. Don't have an envelope? Call the rectory at 937-548-1616. We'll be happy to help.

Finding Happiness in Marriage
Beloved is a video-based study program by the Augustine Institute that explores the true meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage. In twelve sessions, couples will discover the deepest spiritual, emotional, and practical realities of marriage through Scripture, Tradition, and Church teaching. They’ll see firsthand how to experience the wonder, mystery, and joy of this sacrament—from that first “I do” through the rest of their lives.Beloved sessions are presented on a 6-DVD set, and kits come complete with Couple’s and Leader’s Guides – everything you need to experience the full power of Beloved for a marriage preparation program.
There are a lot of great movies, books and audio talks on formed.org. All parishioners are encouraged to watch FREE with our parish subscription to Formed. Just visit formed.org.
