Parish Mission


We, the Catholics community of St. Mary's Parish, Grand Forks, North Dakota, declared that by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have been set free to live as a worshiping, ministering community which proclaims the Good News of Jesus.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we strive to be responsible witnesses to His presence among us, thus enriching the spiritual life of the community, creating a sense of obligation and passing along Christian values and traditions to our children. By being living sighs of God's love by being of service to one another and to the world, we reach out to spread Gospel values and bring God's kingdom to fulfillment.
