Your Talents

How will you use the talents the Lord has given you?

At St. Mary we believe all ministry flows from our baptismal commitment in which we receive the grace of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit gives each of us certain gifts which, because of our union with Christ, are to be used to build up our faith community. When we gather to celebrate the Eucharist, we embody those ministries, and we make visible the invisible working of the Holy Spirit in each of us. If you desire to serve in any of these ministries, please call the parish office at (919) 734-5033, ext. 10 or 26 for the name and telephone number of the appropriate contact person.
