Welcome to Maria Regina Roman Catholic Church
As a community of Baptized Catholics, endowed by God with special gifts and nourished by the Eucharist, we at Maria Regina Parish recognize our mission to call forth these gifts to help build the Body of Christ.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION AT MARIA REGINA SCHOOL
WITH A FULL-TIME, DEDICATED RELIGION TEACHER!
When you think of Catholic Education, you think of discipline, outstanding academics, a family-centered atmosphere and, of course, the Catholic faith taught and lived. Here at MR we want to send forth students who have been formed with deep consciences, morals and a working knowledge of their faith which will asssist them to move into the High School and College Years, ready to serve the world one day. This can only be accomplished through a consistent and challenging spiritual awareness that stems from a teacher who is not afraid to confront the issues of the world and place them in the context of the Gospel of Christ, our Lord. We now have such a person in Mrs. Barbara Haase. Mrs. Haase will work with the mid and upper grades in their Religious Studies. She will touch hearts, share faith, catechize and exemplify service. Let us pray for Mrs. Haase and the young people she will work with each day- that the Holy Spirit may continue to breathe through the hallways of MR and each person therein!
