As the Pastor of Saint Mary’s of the Lake, I would like to welcome you to our website.  Please feel free to spend some time becoming familiar with our Parish and the various ministries and activities which make up our parish life.  If you are new to us, I look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to our weekend liturgy  on Saturday or Sunday. In the meantime, may you and your loved ones be blessed. 
Father McGrath 


          In response to the devasting acts of violence we have all witnessed in Orlando, St. Paul, Baton Rouge, Dallas and in our own communities, Bishop cunningham celebrated a special Mass on July 13th for members of the community to promote harmony.  In the words of Pope Francis:  "May the God of peace arouse in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation.  Violence cannot be overcome with violence.  Violence is overcome with peace."  

          Please take a moment to pray and ponder this prayer from the Saint Mary's Press Catholic Youth Prayer Book titled:  "There Is So Much":  To Jesus, who calmed the stormy sea:  There is so much pressure, there is so much hurt, there is so much Confusion, there is so much noise.  Jesus, please calm this storm, so that I may sit peacefully in his boat with you.  Amen.  



On Thursday, August 4th, St. Mary's of the Lake added a morning Mass (each Thursday at 8:15 am) to our Morning Mass Schedule.  We hope that you will be able to join us.  


Just a Note About Summer

Although we hope for a warm and dry summer, please be aware that we come to Church to honor God. Please make sure that your mode of dress reflects that we are gathering for prayer and not for a day at the beach.
