How to Donate to Holy Name of Mary Parish

Your donations continue that legacy by helping us provide for the celebration of Masses (in the church, in longterm care facilities and in retirement residences), to offer worship services, comfort to the sick, and faith programs, inspire our youth, do outreach work in the community and maintain our beautiful church by paying for salaries and supplies, various expenses (such as heat, insurance, taxes) and repairs and upgrades.
