Saint Mary’s Parish School is accredited by the Michigan Association of Non-Public Schools (M.A.N.S.).  The school, in its current location, was opened in 1954 with about 150 students enrolled in grades three through eight.  In 1955, grades one and two were added.  Enrollment increased every year up to 1965-66 when 330 students were enrolled.  Since the mid-1970s enrollment has remained steady at around 200 students.

Saint Mary’s Catholic Church has served the community for 140 years.  In April 2006, the new 22,000 square foot Parish Center was completed and dedicated by Bishop Walter Hurley during a special ribbon cutting ceremony.  The mission of Saint Mary’s Parish reads:  Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Catholic Christian Community of Saint Mary dedicate ourselves to living the Good News of Jesus Christ, primarily through worship, education, love and service to all.
