Registering in a parish is a declaration of your desire to be part of a Catholic community and to make a commitment to the life of the parish family. Clearly stating your Catholic commitment in all its dimensions brings many advantages, recognition, and responsibility.
At St. Mary Roman Catholic Church, our policy, is that you must be registered and participating in Sunday Mass regularly before a baptism can take place, or for the initial meeting with the pastor in the case of marriage.
Regular attendance is also required for adults who are asked to be a godparent or sponsor at another parish, in order that a letter can be sent stating that they are a practicing Catholic and a registered member of a parish faith community.
Even though you may have attended Mass here for months, or even years, we would like for you to be registered. Pick up a form from the church, narthex, or Parish Office, or click the picture to download a PDF copy. Return your form by mail, drop it off at the office, or place it in the collection basket. For more information, call the parish office at 304-599-3747.
