DEMOGRAPHICS

St. Mary's - Big River is a small rural parish with approximately 200 families. We are in a farming community very close to the Twin Cities of St. Paul/Minneapolis and are a growing community with new new single family homes being built in the surrounding area.
_______________________________________________________

Our parishioners span the generations, from young families and lots of children, young adults, newly marrieds, middle agers and seniors. Some families have three and four generations belonging to St. Mary's. In fact, our present pastor, Fr. Bill Matzek, was born and raised in the area and much of his family is still living, working and farming here and attending St. Mary's. A lot of our families are related or neighbors and friends, as most small parishes seem to be, and most of the parishioners know each other. This makes for happy & lively social gatherings and fellowships.
