First Saturdays Devotion

Next Saturday, September 6th, is the first Saturday of the month.  Join us at 8AM as we participate in the First Saturdays Devotion with Archbishop Sample and parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Portland.  On the first Saturdays of the month, the Faithful are asked to Go to Confession, Receive Communion, Pray the Rosary, and Meditate for 15 minutes – all with the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

STM Community Picnic!
