Welcome to St. Mary's!
St. Mary's is a diverse and vibrant faith community that believes and professes the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the living tradition of the Catholic Church. Our mission is to form loving disciples who will transform the world. All are welcome!
Whether you are new to our parish or have been a long-time member, you are welcome. Last year we celebrated our 200th Anniversary. St. Mary's has strong roots in the Rockville area and serves as a spiritual oasis for the more than 7000 parishioners.
Many of you have been asking, “How can I be a part of the Pope’s visit to Washington?” One great way to be a part of his visit is to take the Walk with Francis Pledge.
This September we welcome Pope Francis to Washington by committing to follow his example of faith and service. We are challenging you and 100,000 other individuals and organizations to take the pledge to Walkwith Francis and pray, serve, or act in a new way to advance his mission and ministry in the next year. Your pledge will be presented as a gift to the Holy Father during his visit.
Commit to do one of the following:
-Pray regularly for the Holy Father and learn about his message on the Joy of the Gospel, the mercy of God and the love of Christ.
-Serve by reaching out and caring for those in need and supporting charitable efforts in our communities and beyond.
-Act to promote human life and dignity, justice and peace, family life and religious freedom, care for creation and the common good.
Go to WalkwithFrancis.org to take the pledge as an individual or group. Challenge others in person, through a short video, or on social media to also take the pledge to Walk with Francis using #WalkwithFrancis.
Share your pledge and challenge others on social media! Here is a sample you can use:
