We, the people of St. Mary's Parish, Centralia, IL, appreciative of our rich tradition since 1857, are a Catholic Faith Community empowered by the Holy Spirit, the sacraments, and prayer.

Using our individual gifts and talents, we are called: To provide Catholic religious education to our youth and parish community, proclaim the Gospel values, minister to our parish family and all people of God, be faithful stewards of our gifts, and continue to grow in Christian faith and love.

With God’s grace, we will continue our apostolic mission to spread the Good News and to follow our baptismal call to be the Body of Christ.
