Welcome to The Church of the Presentation
of the Blessed Virgin Mary

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.

9th Annual Walk to the Cathedral
Sunday, June 4, 1:00 pm

Join us on a pilgCathedralrimage of faith
as we walk six miles from Presentation of Mary Church to the Cathedral of St. Paul, on the Feast of Pentecost. A wonderful way to open ourselves to the presence and power of the Spirit of Jesus, who dwells within us.

Leaving at 1:00 p.m. from the lower parking lot, we will make this journey on foot, much like the first disciples on the road to Emmaus. Stopping for refreshments at St. Mary’s Church, we expect to arrive at the Cathedral at about 4:00 p.m., and make a brief visit with a time for prayer, before walking down to Cossetta’s for dinner at about 4:30 p.m. (Some will plan to return using the Metro Transit bus.)

If you would like to join us for any part of the itinerary, you are most welcome. No need to sign up; just show up. A great event for families, and for our parish family!

Reawakens Faith!

24 Hours a Day  –  7 Days a Week
in the Divine Mercy Chapel
located in Presentation’s Parish Center

An Adorer’s Perspective:
I absolutely am finding adoration to be a wonderful experience. It’s

amazing how an hour of meditation can really have an impact on your daily life the way it has. I feel myself more at peace with stresses of life and better equipped to react to all situations that arise in my daily life. I find myself driving to and from work in the peaceful silence of my car in prayer, meditation and just listening more and more. ~ Mike Picha

What hour can you give to our Lord each week?
