Dear Friends in Christ,

On behalf of St. Maria Goretti Roman Catholic Parish, I invite you to use this web site to become acquainted with our parish and the caring community that worships here.

I know you will find our parish to be warm and welcoming. We have a wonderful spirit of belonging and family, and acknowledge that we are called to be grateful stewards of all that God has entrusted to us, including sharing ourselves with others. Our stewardship lifestyle offers opportunities to grow in faith with spiritual and social activities and can assist each one of us in knowing, loving and serving Christ.

I invite you to join us for Mass and become active in parish life. 

God's blessings always.

Fr. Doug Lorig, Pastor

A Prayer for My Parish

Almighty God,

My parish family is composed of people like me.

I help make it what it is. It will be friendly, if I am.

Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.

It will do great work, if I work.

It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.

It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, if I invite and bring them.

It will be a parish family of loyalty, love, fearlessness and faith, and a parish with a noble

spirit, if I - who make it what it is - am filled with these same qualities.

Therefore, with the help of God, I will dedicate myself to the task of being all the things that I want

my parish family to be.

Bless my journey, Lord God, that I might build the Church through Jesus Christ our Lord,
