Bio: Marie loves being Catholic and getting together with like-minded friends – new and old. She is rather fond of cats, reading, knitting, and good food.  She’s also eternally single – hence her hobbies.  She was the girl who faked a stomach ache when she had to do oral presentations in grade school, and now she’s been leading an Emmaus Small group since the pilot program – the Holy Spirit works in mysteriously wonderful ways! Maureen is a recently retired educator who wishes to continue growing in her faith and service to others. Her favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:6-7.

Mark’s favorite bible passage is Ephesians 2:4-5 “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” Linda’s favorite scripture verse is 2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.”

Cars for Schools

Sunday, June 3rd, from 8:30 – 12:45

We will have our last fundraiser for this school year. It is similar to a Ride and Drive but is now called Cars for Schools. Pinckney Chrysler Dodge Jeep will bring over some cars for people to test drive. While you will be asked to fill out a form, NO ONE will contact you from the dealership unless you wish to have them contact you.

We will earn $10 for every car that goes for a test drive around the school parking lot. Only drivers 18 and older are allowed to test drive. You must show your driver’s license. A test drive will only take 10-15 minutes of your time. THIS IS EASY MONEY FOR THE SCHOOL!

All money will go into the pot towards the purchase of a new playground structure. This is also the last monthly Men’s Club breakfast until September. Invite your friends, neighbors, and family to come eat breakfast and then help support our school at the same time!

St. Mary Catholic School Now Enrolling

Open Enrollment for 2018-2019 is taking place for all grades preschool to 8th grade. At St. Mary Catholic School, our students are encouraged to live a virtuous life through their actions and expectations. While our faith is at the center of our school life, we also strive for academic excellence and responsible citizenship.

Our teaching and learning practices are rooted in the development of personal responsibility in all areas of our lives. We respect the dignity of each child and promote respectful behavior in the school environment.

We are reminded that as a Catholic school, we pray, provide service, build community and evangelize to others. We are blessed at St. Mary to pray and be witnesses of our faith as part of our daily routine. St. Mary’s doors are open to you with the assurance that we will be at your family’s side providing excellence in teaching and learning in a responsible and caring manner. Join us to make this an even more remarkable community.

Please call the school office for more information, set up a tour, or find out how to enroll your student(s) in our parish school. Our school principal, Veronica Kinsey can be reached at 734-878-5616 or
