150 Years of St. Mary's Visitation Parish
The 150 year celebratory committee's goal is to develop and plan an event that glorifies God by giving thanks to him and our founding families for 150 years of blessings at this historical milestone. This event should include all current and past members of our parish community.
The parish history has been published in the book, Their Faith Lives On: Saint Mary's Visitation Parish Histories. Copies can be purchased at the parish office.
The parish started in 1866 with Rev. William Herwig as the first official pastor in New Salem, Michigan.
Family Parish/School Census:
The committee is looking to contact as many current and former members of the parish and school to include in the Sesquicentennial Celebration activities. Forms are located in the pews at church, at both entrances, and at the link below.
Census forms can be returned at both entrances in church or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The committee is looking to share stories and connections to our parish history. If you would like to share your family's story and connection to the parish please contact by email email@example.com or by phone.
The committee is also looking to share stories and connections to our parish school and alumni. If you would like to share your family's story and connection to the school please contact by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone.
