Mission Statement

Through the grace of God, we, the baptized of St. Mary’s Church, West Warwick, RI, affirm our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  We are committed to the Gospel of Jesus and the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.  We are a parish family, which faithfully follows in the footsteps of our Savior.  Under the patronage of Mary ever Virgin, we embrace her as Mother of God, our spiritual Mother and beloved patroness of the church.  By God’s mercy, we are called to share in Sacred Liturgy, the celebration of the Sacraments, prayer and the reading of Sacred Scripture.  We respond to Christ’s mandate to love one another; especially the poor, the needy, the abandoned, the hungry and the marginalized.  We invite the youth of our community to encounter the Lord, especially within the context of our Faith Formation programs and activities.  Our parish family is open to all who seek and thirst for God as experienced and celebrated within the life of the Roman Catholic Church.
