Community Resources

Thanks to the generous donations of our parishioners, Mary Mother houses a small, non-perishable food shelf for those in need.  We also distribute diapers to families on a limited basis. Mary Mother's food shelf and diapers are available by appointment Monday - Thursday, from 10am to 3pm. Contact Janet Gorshe at the Parish Office (952-890-0045), to make an appointment or if you have questions on Mary Mother services.
