In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds, “Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation.”

Annual Turkey Drive
Nov. 19, 8:15-8:45 a.m.
It’s time for our annual turkey collection to benefit families in need! This year, we need your help more than ever. We will not receive outside help this year, so we will need to collect at least 400 turkeys here at St. Mary to meet the demand! Please consider helping us out by bringing a frozen turkey to the parking lot in front of the rectory on Monday, Nov. 19 between 8:15 and 8:45 a.m. Your generosity will make the holidays a little brighter for families in difficult circumstances.
For more information, contact Julie Smith at email@example.com or 303.208.7514.
