MaryFair Weekend 2017: Eat, drink & be Irish!

Embrace the Irish spirit no matter what your heritage and join us for MaryFair Weekend: September 30-October 1. This year’s Irish themed weekend kicks off with Saturday evening’s dinner and auction gala.  This adult-night-out includes a seated dinner, Dessert Auction, Wine and Whiskey Pull, Live Auction, and much more. Funds raised from this event are essential to keep Catholic education more affordable and to accomplish needed improvements to our school and parish facilities.



The celebration continues Sunday with the free parish picnic immediately following 10:30am Mass. You will be treated to authentic Irish food and drink, live music, step dancing, and an array of Gaelic themed activities. Erin go bragh!

All MaryFair events take place on the Saint Mary campus under the big white tent.

Designated Appeal 2017 to Fund Two Projects

Each year, there is a fund-a-need drive during the MaryFair Dinner and Auction event.  This year, our goal is to fund two essential projects in the school with our Designated Appeal funds: first, replacing all window blinds to enhance security and increase energy efficiency; second, modernizing the outdated equipment in the restrooms to provide a variety of benefits to students and guests.
