Great Gatherings are events, parties, lessons and unique experiences generously donated and hosted by parishioners and friends of St. Mary’s parish community in downtown St. Paul. Great Gatherings act as both a fundraiser and a community builder. More information here. Events are generally scheduled from October through June of each year, and are explained in detail in the downloadable St. Mary’s Parish Great Gatherings Event Booklet (example) and on the Events pages on this site.
