Fr. Mel Strazicich

St. Mary Parish would like to extend a warm welcome to Fr. Mel Strazicich (Fr. Straz), our new pastor

- seen here blessing the new walking rosary, created during Vocation Bible School.  He joined us on July 1.  He is a son returning as a Father...he grew up as a parishioner at St. Mary and we joyfully receive him back.

Please return to this page to read his message for us once he is settled into his office.

And thank you for your patience during this time of transition - not only are we welcoming our new pastor, but our new administrator as well. It is an exciting time of change for the parish. We look forward to welcoming you to Anacortes, too!

May God bless you richly,
The parishioners of St. Mary Catholic Church
