How do we get tickets? Tickets are on sale following all Masses the weekend of June 15 and 16 near the entrance of the church, and at the Parish Office throughout the summer. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors, and, thanks to a generous donation made by St. Mary’s Knights of Columbus, children accompanied by an adult will be given tickets for FREE!
