Memorial Day Mass

A Memorial Day Mass will be celebrated at Calvary North Cemetery (at the intersection of Columbia Road and Gateway Drive) starting at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, May 29th (weather permitting.) Please bring a lawn chair. [In case of rain, Mass will be held at St. Mary's Church - 216 Belmont Rd.]

There will not be an evening Memorial Day prayer service at Calvary South this year. The parish Pastors have decided to hold a Mass in the South cemetery at a date to be determined later this summer.

Flowers, wreaths, and other decorations may be placed on graves at both Calvary North and Calvary South cemeteries beginning on May 20th, and must be removed before June 6th. Your cooperation is needed as these items affect our ability to keep all areas mowed and looking beautiful.

Have a Blessed Memorial Day!

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.
