We, the people of Saint Mary of Grace Parish, established in 1909,
are a Roman Catholic Community in Meadville, Pennsylvania,
with proud traditions, a strong sense of family,
and a welcoming atmosphere to all.
As a parish of the Diocese of Erie in union with the universal Church, we are committed to following the example of our patroness,
Mary of Grace, as faithful followers of Jesus Christ
by striving to do the will of the Father through living out the scriptures.
Together with the greater Catholic community of Meadville,
and as stewards of Godís gifts,
†we seek to share in the mission of Jesus Christ, His Son,
to spread His kingdom through:
∑†††††† inspirational prayer, worship and celebration of the Sacraments beginning and ending in the Eucharist
∑†††††† effective evangelization through the proclamation of the Gospel
∑†††††† selfless service to one another and to others in our community
∑†††††† the formation and education of all members of Godís people.
Through strengthening and supporting the faith
of each individual and family,
and holding each other accountable,
we will grow as a strong, unified parish family
whose ultimate goal is to glorify God in all we do!
