Welcome to Presentation
Set as a beacon on a hill to surrounding Maplewood and the east side of St. Paul, the Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been a center of Catholic faith and life since 1946. Our parish continues to be a vibrant place of worship, education, and outreach to the community. We welcome you to join us as we celebrate God’s many gifts and strive to bring the gospel message of Jesus Christ to the world around us.
The Paschal Season is central to our identity as Catholics. The attentive observation of Lent through prayer, fasting, penance and almsgiving is an important part of our preparation for the joy of Easter. Listed below is our liturgical schedule for Lent. You will find this year, additional weekly opportunities to pray the Stations of the Cross, the Holy Rosary, and Adoration with Evening Prayer & Benediction. I invite you to participate as fully as you can in our Lenten liturgies. Fr. Benny Mekkatt
