Membership

New Member Registration

 

If you regularly attend Mass at St Mary’s, we invite you to become a member of our spiritual family, and that begins with registration. But for each person, what follows registration will be a bit different.

 

If you are a practicing Catholic and just moving to Greenville or joining us from another parish, please take time to acquaint yourself with the various activities at St Mary’s, and let us know if you need assistance in connecting with a group in the parish.

 

If you are not yet Catholic or are a Catholic returning to the regular practice of the faith after some time away, then we recommend that you learn more about the Catholic Faith by taking classes in our Introduction to Catholicism and/or the Program of Catholic Studies.

 

To one and all, welcome to St Mary’s! Please be sure to introduce yourself to Father Newman either after Mass or in the office, and to make an appointment for an office visit, please call his assistant at 864.679.4100.

 

Please note that Mass attendance is recorded by the use of stewardship envelopes at weekend Masses. Only registered and active parishioners are eligible to be married here, to request the Baptism or First Communion of a child here, or to be authorized to serve as a sacramental sponsor or godparent for the Baptism or Confirmation of someone else, either here at St Mary’s or in another parish. Active parishioners are those who are registered, attend Mass each week at St Mary’s (and use envelopes as proof of Mass attendance), and support the Church according to their means and the parish stewardship guidelines.

 

A New Member packet will be mailed to your address, which will contain, among other items, temporary stewardship envelopes until the dated weekly envelopes arrive. You are always welcome to write your name on the blank envelopes in the pews and place them into the collection plate.

 

A confirmation email will be sent after completing your registration form. If you do not receive this email, please contact the church office at 864.679.4100.
