The Disciple Maker Index Survey Opens Feb. 17th!

Please Read and Help!  For All Parishioners!

Please help us participate by completing a 10-15 minute survey as soon as possible.  

Go to

The survey will only be available on 02/17/2021 and will close on 03/23/2021 at 11:59pm.  We will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow.  All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible.  This information will be invaluable to Father Eppenbrock and Sister Maria Inviolata and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be.  We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.

Thank you for helping with this important project!


We have had a year filled with different ways of living and praying. There are fewer people in church. No water in the font. Less singing. No coffee and doughnuts on the way home. Yet we still pray.

Instead of distributing ashes as a cross on the forehead—unsafe in this time of the COVID 19 pandemic—we can still receive them by sprinkling on the top of the head (permitted by our Catholic Church’s ritual rules respecting an ancient liturgical practice). We may look a little cleaner. Regardless, we can still repent—and believe in the Gospel!! We will still bear ashes home to begin our Lenten disciplines and practices.

Come to Ash Wednesday, Feb-ruary 17 at 10am at St. Denis or 6:15 at St. Mary.

MAlogoAve Maria Parish Mission Statement

Ave Maria Parish is a Catholic faith community who welcomes all people to our Christian family. We are disciples and sacramental followers of Jesus Christ. In our chosen vocations, we call upon the Blessed Mother’s intercession and recognize the power of the Holy Spirit within each of us to carry out God’s work.

We strive to grow together in holiness through prayer, reception of the sacraments, faith formation and evangelization. Through the grace of God, we extend ourselves to each other and our community to proclaim the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.
