June News

What a tumultuous time we are living through. Things may be difficult, but we hope this is turning point for our country that will bring about real, positive change.

Thank you to everyone that came out to the March for Equality and other protests last week. The number of people participating was amazing and demonstrates just how wonderful our St. Mary's community is. 

Let's keep the momentum going.

If you haven't yet signed up for membership in the local NAACP, you can do so here.

Also, we will be organizing buses to the March on Washington in August. Look for more details soon.
