The last regularly scheduled Saturday evening Mass at St. Mary’s, Lonaconing, will be Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. I would like to invite all parishioners, former parishioners and friends of St. Mary’s to attend this Mass and to keep those of us who have been parishioners here for many years in your thoughts and prayers as we begin an emotional and spiritual journey to adapt to the changes at St. Mary’s.

The parish will become the Mountain Maryland Catholic Youth Center for the Seven Catholic Churches of Western Maryland. Present parishioners will migrate to other parishes, with the exception of special times such as Christmas, Easter and Holy Days.

We all give thanks for the many years we have enjoyed our beautiful church and the fellowship we have experienced, both within our church and with our friends of other denominations when we worshipped jointly. A Christmas Eve Mass is planned at St. Mary’s. I also extend an invitation to this Mass.
