ST. MARY CATHOLIC CHURCH EVENT:

NO TIME TO COOK?” Back by popular demand, we are taking pre-orders for Knights of Columbus Irish Night food.  Orders for Shepard’s pie, lamb stew, and beef stew can be placed online now at www.stmarysrichmond.org for pick up after each mass in the Lower Commons on March 14th and 15th. All proceeds will go towards building a proper kitchen for the school children of our twin parish in Angouman, Haiti. Pè Gèn, our pastor from Angouman will be at St. Mary’s for the annual Haiti sponsorship weekend on March 21st and is very much looking forward to visiting again with St. Mary’s students.
