a message from the pastor
Welcome to the website of St. Mary Church in Downs. I hope that you find our website to be a reflection of the love and hospitality ofour Parish Family. It is my greater hope that you will come and visit us! Here you will find a community striving to know and love Jesus. Because of the Lord's love, you will sense joy and witness service to God's people. I would wager to bet that you will walk away saying:
"Wow, what an amazing place!" I hope to see you soon and be assured of my prayers!
May God bless you and may God bless our parish family.
