Message from the Pastor

Dear St. Mary Parishioner!

Scripture says:  "Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels (Hebrews 13:2)." 

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 of our 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.

Fr. Greg Ketcham
