St. Mary’s is committed to serving and discovering Christ in the eyes and hearts of others. We intend to build the Body of Christ at home and abroad, bearing Christ in a tangible way while engaging and sharing his presence in other cultures.
This extends to local and long distance missions. Please contact the church office at 352-347-6422 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are a participating church of LoveINC, a local mission coordinating about 30 churches to meet a wide variety of needs for individuals and families including food, shelter, clothing, furniture, job skills, family budgets, etc. While meeting immediate needs, LoveINC also evaluates underlying issues and works to help people make life changes that will bless them for the long haul.
Volunteers are always needed for their thrift shop, "Centsible Furnishings", and mentoring and tutoring.

Our Food Pantry is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Parishioners bring non-parishable foodstuffs on the first Sunday of each month. The DOK sorts the food into bags and our volunteers distribute the bags of food from our Parish Hall on Food Pantry days. If you would like to donate food or if you know anyone in need of food please contact Patty LaRose or Maria Sullivan via the church office at (352) 347-6422 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Good News Club
An opportunity to reach local children for Christ.
St. Mary's is working with the Child Evangelism Fellowship to establish The Good News Club in Marion Oaks Elementary in Marion Oaks. You can read more about The Good News Club here: www.cefonline.com
Each school will require a team of 12-14 to handle the presentation and administration of the Good News Club program. Clubs meet once each week. Most of the roles are administrative and support in nature (attendance, organizing snacks, etc.) The program takes a couple of hours to present each week. There are program costs and we are seeking donations toward these costs at all times.
The program complies with all Marion County School District rules and regulations, including background screening of team participants, child protection training and careful identification of those picking children up from school. The schools are very appreciative of the effect Good News Clubs have on children and their families. The club does not violate the establishment clause of the First Amendment of the US Constitution. It is entirely voluntary and requires specific parental permission.
For further information or to join the team, please contact Jim Koehlinger via the church office at (352) 347-6422 or email email@example.com
