Catholic Church  of St Mary
  Ponca City, Oklahoma

Welcome to St. Mary's Parish 

Mobility characterizes our parish. 108 years of vital parish life also reveals a history of hospitality and many dimensions of friendship and service.  

As a part of the universal Catholic Church - also the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City - our parishioners respond to many local expectations and needs - youth, adult and civic.

Prayer and openness to the Holy Spirit guide our efforts to offer religious education in many forms…adult, St. Mary's Catholic School and Religious Education. Our parish family has practiced stewardship for years and their many talents are celebrated with the Sunday Eucharist and increasing awareness that discipleship is more than membership.

The Holy Eucharist is the center of our unity and love and also the spiritual power of vitality in serving not only our parishioner but also the local community. 

We warmly welcome all to St. Mary's Parish. Join one, or more, of the ministries that St. Mary's offers, and discover a new level of your faith.

God bless you. 

Sincerely yours, in Christ,
Rev. Kevin Ratterman

The Archdiocese of Oklahoma City has implemented an educational program which teaches the Catholic understanding that each individual must be respected and honored.  The program’s policies provided that anyone – volunteers, paid staff, religious or clergy – involved in a ministry with minors (those under the age of 18) or vulnerable adults (those who are uniquely vulnerable to abuse because of physical or mental disabilities) is required to:  

1.  Submit a Parish Volunteer of Employee Application to the Diocese of Oklahoma City.  

2.  Agree to a criminal background check; 

3.  Attend a workshop on child sexual abuse.  

We are using the eAppsDB online program, which allows the individual to logon and enter all of their information as it pertains to their job or volunteer duties with the church.  The web-enabled database program simplifies the tasks of collecting, organizing, and processing sensitive information so that it can be easily submitted for background checks and, subsequently, diocesan and parish approval.  Please be patient and understanding when you are asked to complete an application for these background checks. If you are currently a volunteer/employee and are not asked for a background check, this means that you are already in the system and have received approval from the Archdiocese and parish.  Working together we can all HELP KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE.
