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 




Our Holy Day Mass on Thursday, May 25th, for the Ascension of The Lord, will be celebrated at 7:00am and 7:00pm that day.  


Mass for the People of the Parish on Monday, May 29th, will be celebrated at St. Mary's of the Lake Cemetery at 8:30am.


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. 


Our next Coffee and Conversation will be held on Monday, June 5th, following morning Mass, and it will be sponsored by our Human Development Committee Members.  Put the date on your calendar and stop into the Parish Center for a cup of coffee, some great conversation and plan on some fantastic sweets to satisfy the tooth, or should I say soul.  All are welcome!

 Join our Campaign Against Hunger - information here

 During the past 36 months, St. Mary's Campaign Against Hunger  has collected $34,526.16. 100% has been distributed to many local food pantries.  For every $1.00 contributed, 3 meals can be provided. Therefore our CAH has supplied approximately 103,578 meals. [When we eat simply so others may simply eat one day each month, we are following Jesus' message, " for I was hungry and you gave me something to eat".
   Next weekend our contributions will go to our Sandwich Ministry, Marcellus and Spafford food pantries and Northside Ministries.
Thank You for your great generosity!!
