A Welcome Message from Fr. Jorge Rodriguez
When I first came to St. Mary Help of Christians Church, I was reminded by how amazing the parishioners accepted me as a Servant of God. As time went by, countless of beautiful memories reminded me of how impressive the church as a whole. But this was not the reason why the church was built.
Every church has its own missions. Our church invites people to worship, thank, and praise God. It is a place of adoration and fellowship. A place where we open up our hearts and let Jesus come into our lives.
This website is the virtual door to St. Mary Help of Christians Church. Our website connects you to our community. I invite you to explore the different ways that you can get involved in our community. Share your time and hearts to be a part of this beautiful community of St. Mary Help of Christian Church.
Welcome to St. Mary Help of Christians Church Website. Thank you for visiting the website.
