Welcome to St. Mary’s!
Welcome to the online home of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Kutztown. Please join us, as we proclaim and celebrate that Christ is Lord is risen! He is the way, the truth and the life. He has conquered sin and death, and calls to each heart — “Come, follow me!”
In this month of May when we celebrate our earthly Mothers, it is fitting to give pause and reflect upon the Blessed Mother Mary, our mother in heaven!
All are invited to join Father John on Tuesday, May 31 at 7pm for an informal talk about the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary, with special emphasis upon her role in salvation history and in the Scriptures.
So many misunderstand Catholic devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, both outside and inside the Church. Many of our Protestant brothers and sisters consider our beliefs to be unbiblical. How do we respond? Was Mary merely a bit player in God’s plan, or was she a central figure? How do we explain our faith, and give due love and attention to the mother given to us by Jesus from the cross?
Join us — Tuesday, May 31 at 7pm in the Social Hall of the Religious Ed Center – for this informal & informative talk, Q&A and fellowship with your family at St. Mary’s. Light refreshments will be available.
First Saturday Morning Mass
Beginning in May, the parish will be offering a daily Mass on the first Saturday of each month at 8:15am.
Our next first Saturday Mass will be June 4 at 8:15am.
In 1917, Our Lady of Fatima asked for special devotions as part of the “Peace Plan” she was sent to deliver! This included the practice of receiving Jesus, truly Present in Holy Communion for five consecutive first Saturdays, as well as confession and the Holy Rosary. Please join us and incorporate this devotion into your spiritual life! Rosary will be prayed immediately following Mass.
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee. Amen. * Delivered by the Angel of Peace during the First Apparition of the Angel to the three shepherd children of Fatima in spring of 1916.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
