  • We have been given an opportunity to raise funds for the St. Mary Athletic Association by hosting 4th grade boys Biddy Basketball games on Saturdays at St. Mary School!  The money will be used to support middle school athletics (7th and 8th grade). We are asking 7th and 8th grade parents or family members to volunteer for a shift at either the concessions or gate. Please take a moment to review the dates and times and sign up for a shift!  This is an easy fundraiser – NO SELLING!! Thank you for your support of Catholic education.
