Are you one of those, who cannot at this time in your life, commit to a regular weekly hour at Adoration?  Could you occasionally cover an hour for someone who cannot come every once in a while?  I need subs so we can continue to give God our due.  Please contact me to let me know you feel called to occasionally help.  I promise not to call you to be a sub too often.  Please contact me at 301 868-0694 or 202 368-7189.  Anne Ramsey

Stewardship is planned, proportionate, and sacrificial.  All Christian stewards must consider prayerfully the gifts they have received from God, and they should make a decision about what will be given.

This is OUR PARISH COMMUNITY, and we are asking for the support of all households.  

Thank you so much for your support of St. Mary's Church of Piscataway!

Parish School of Religion Registration
2020-2021 School Year

In following the safety protocols of St. Mary's School, we will begin the year with virtual classes and will switch to meeting in person once it becomes safe to do so. In order to allow families time to travel to and from Sunday morning Mass, classes will most likely be held Sunday late afternoon (for younger students) and evening (for older students) until we are again able to meet in person. Classes will begin in late September to allow families time to adjust to this unusual school year in which we find ourselves. Official times and dates, as well as more specific class information, will be announced at the beginning of September.

Contact Miss Ellienne Planchet at (301) 292-0527 x 104 or religion@smsp.school with any questions.
A copy of each student's Baptismal certificate should be sent in the first week of class. Registration fees provide all P.S.R. students with necessary supplies and textbooks, and parent study supplies.

PSR fees for this year are $20 - one student, $35 - two students, $50 - three students. If you are registering more than three children, please contact Miss Planchet for additional rates.

The PSR fee can be mailed to St. Mary's Parish at 13401 Piscataway Rd., Clinton, MD 20735 OR hand delivered to Michele Fulk in the Parish Office. Please make checks payable to St. Mary's Piscataway.

If PSR fees are a hardship for your family, we still want to see you at PSR! Please contact us.
Miss Planchet is looking for interested volunteers to be a presence during our Parish School of Religion.  Please, contact her using the information included above.
