Our Services

What are services like?
The 9:30 am Sunday Mass features a traditional choir and organ, while the 11:30 am Sunday Mass has a contemporary ensemble that sings a mix of traditional hymns, new liturgical music and Christian praise, as well as original compositions. Set against a backdrop of a beautiful Italian Renaissance architecture, visitors to Mother of God say they feel a dimension of spirituality, warmth and welcome when they step inside the doors of the church. This is a parish that has a reverence for liturgy that is energizing and affirming of God's love for us all.

What is the community like?
People who come to Mother of God Church typically drive 20-30 minutes past other Catholic churches along the way. They actively seek to live their faith through prayer and action. The congregation consists of people from all walks of life who are seeking a spiritual home they haven't found anywhere else. We strive to be inclusive, offering ASL interpreters at the 11:30 am Sunday Mass, as well as a children's liturgy of the Word. Social outreach is one of the foundational pillars of the parish, so there are many opportunities to get involved with efforts to feed the hungry, tutor inner city students, participate in our jail ministry or purchase fair trade items to help small businesses in developing countries.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome all seekers to our church, regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey or your situation in life. As one young parishioner stated when asked what they like about Mother of God, "It's a place where nobody checks you out." Come and be nourished for as long as you like. We are all children of the same Creator.
