Thanks to all who donated to this year's Open Appeal! These funds will go toward a Holy Family Statue, a dream of Fr. Mike's


Holy Family Statue

This appeal is to help us fulfill one of Fr. Mike's dreams for the children of St. Maria Goretti Parish. We are commissioning a statue of the Holy Family (similar to the one shown here), with Jesus as a young boy and Mary sitting down so that children can sit in her lap. Help us make this dream a reality! If you would like to donate to the statue, please bring cash or a check to the parish office (be sure indicate that your donation is for the Holy Family Statue), or make your donation on our parish online giving site.
