THE MISSION

of St. Mary's Church

 

We the Catholic faithful of St. Mary's Church, Petersburg,

located in the Potomac Highlands,

gather as a community of  faith, worship and service

under the guidance of our pastor  and the ministry of our pastoral staff

 in union with the Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston.

 

As a family oriented people, we endeavor to educate ourselves

 and to share our faith experience with all members of our local community

in social, civic and ecumenical activities.

In doing so, we commit ourselves to reach out and welcome

all those who desire to proclaim and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
