Outreach

One of our outreach programs is to the West Columbia Elementary School. Every year since 2012, we have sponsored the fifth grade students' participation in The Discovery Program at Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas. This is a four day program (three nights overnight), fully accredited by TEA, in which the students learn about tree, plant, wildlife ID, astronomy and many other items that enrich their sense of the outdoors.

Our community assistance program serves the citizens of West Columbia.

On Friday nights at 8 pm, the West Columbia AA chapter meets in our Parish Hall.

We also are the volunteer land stewards of The Nash Prairie Preserve owned by the Nature Conservancy. You may call the church (979-345-3456) or e-mail us at stmaryswc@centurylink.net for personal tours at any time.    

On Shrove Tuesday, the Tuesday before Lent begins, Saint Mary's hosts a city wide pancake supper which is free to all.

Our parishioners also donate their time and talent to various volunteer organizations.
