Please join us to celebrate the Easter Triduum tonight, tomorrow night, and Saturday night at St. Mary on the Hill Catholic Church.  The services are detailed above.

As we celebrate Easter this weekend, please keep in your prayers our St. Mary's families who will be completing their Professions of Faith and joining the Catholic Church at Saturday’s Easter Vigil. 

We have had an overwhelming response to prayer sign-ups for Frances Brown, sister of John T Brown, who will be having neurological surgery tomorrow in Atlanta.  We have extended prayer time opportunities throughout the day tomorrow.  Please sign up at this link http://www.signupschedule.com/annmarie to help us keep the Brown family in our prayers throughout the entire day.  We thank you in advance for your commitment!
