St. Mary's Visitation / St. Stanislaus - Dorr/ Sacred Heart - Watson

Fr. Stephen Rodrigo, Senior Pastor                                                            Fr. Christopher Derda, Administrator

As of July 1, 2016 St. Mary's Visitation is joining with St. Stanislaus in Dorr and Sacred Heart in Watson.  In joining we will start a collaborative which will eventually be  one priest for the three parishes.

For the time being we will have the help of Fr. Rodrigo, as he and Fr. Derda will alternate Masses at the three parishes.
