Begun in 1927, St. Mary of the Woods promotes the ideals of Christian community through the recognition that each person is given the manifestation of the Spirit of the common good.
We believe in fostering spiritual growth through scripture, the sacraments and through the use of each person's gifts in our family.

Beacons of Light
Sounds strange, doesn’t it? Yet this is what the Holy Father has called. In its simplest form, synodality represents a collaborative approach by all the people of God to address a particular issue for which the Holy Father seeks input. For this synod, he wants to hear from everyone on how the whole Church (not only the bishops and priests) can journey together in
bringing the gospel message to the world. To address this “synodal” approach, he has called for all dioceses in the world to hold local consultative meetings to discuss this topic.
