About St. Mary on the Lake Parish Manitou Beach.
Our parish is small, and has a Pastor who celebrates liturgy and a Sacramental Minister who celebrates liturgy with us on weekends. We provide faith formation in various ways. On Sundays, our children Pre-K through Grade 5 have Sunday Gospel lessons during the Liturgy of the Word. After Liturgy, Family Faith Formation meets which focuses on Scripture, the Sacraments, and Seasonal themes. On the third Sunday of the Month we have a wonderful breakfast, an opportunity to meet and share with members of our faith community. Earmarks of this parish community are: Faith-filled, Friendly and Fun. There are no strangers here, only friends you haven’t met, yet.
If you can carry a tune and enjoy singing your praises to God every Sunday, why not join the choir and assist in leading the congregation in song? There are a lot of good voices out there in the pews! Practice is 40 minutes before Sunday Mass (8:50 am). Please give joining some prayerful consideration. Any choir member would be happy to share more information with you.
