*** Important Announcement:  Weather Alerts—Winter is upon us!  Our Parish policy is to cancell Mass and other parish activities scheduled when the local public schools close.  However, whatever the weather brings, please be safe. 

We will post closures on Facebook (Ave Maria Parish, Lexington, MI), MyParish App (free app), or Remind.  Give us your cell phone number or email and we will add you to the Remind List. 

A Tribute to our Catholic Veterans! 


Each year on November 11, we observe Veterans Day and remember all those who have served our country in times of war.

Among those veterans are our military chaplains. Five military chaplains, all of them Catholics, have received the Medal of Honor since the Civil War. Two of them are on the path to sainthood as their stories of bravery have touched people the world over. Their example inspires a new generation of men to be chaplains as well.

Four Catholic military chaplains have also been recognized for bravery in the line of duty with United States Navy ships named in their honor.

For more information, visit the USCCB.


We are looking for volunteers who would be interested in serving on a Safety committee or an Evangelization Committee. The Safety Committee  makes recommendations regarding safety issues in our churches. The Evangelization Committee actively evangelizes in our church and local communities using various resources available, and makes recommendations and plans for future evangelization efforts.

Please contact Sister if you are interested or have questions.

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.
