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.

Enjoy the sunshine!


St. Mary's parishioners generously gave $4,271.75 to provide assistance for the victims of the wildfire that took place on the west coast of the island of Maui. It is likely that the U. S. Bishops will soon introduce a similar campaign, in which case we will fold this one into theirs. In any event, we will be supporting the efforts of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Honolulu, and I invite you to go to
