Mrs. Pierce's Principal Message

Wow, I can’t believe it is March already! We are in Week 3 of Lent. This week, Jesus reminds us of the woman at the well. This is a powerful story that reminds us to lay our sins and short comings before our Lord. He will restore us with his love and mercy. Are we prepared and ready to face Him? Is there someone we need to forgive? Through Christ, we will become better people. May we wash the feet of others and reconcile our differences. May Christ’s peace be with you!


Mrs. Pierce

Rosary Groups

We are in the Lenten Season and it is a season of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. Would you like to begin your day in prayer, but can’t seem to make the time? This Lent, consider taking one morning each week to begin your day with the Rosary. We have two morning Rosary Prayer Groups here at SMG – one each for men and women. We are very informal – come as you are. We meet in the St. Maria Center at 7:35 am. Drop off your student in car line, then stop in for 20 minutes of prayer. There is no better way to begin the day than spending a few moments with God. All are welcome to join us.

Women’s Rosary Group (babies / toddlers welcome)

Monday Mornings 7:35 am

St. Maria Center

Men’s Rosary Group

Wednesday Mornings 7:35 am
