our mission

To serve the Gospel and the Church by forming Eucharistic disciples in prayer, evangelization, works of mercy, and Marian consecration in the spirit of St. Maximilian Kolbe.


Autumn is here and a beautiful time of year to honor someone you love with a Memorial bench. Memorial benches represent more than just a place to sit, they’re a way to honor a loved one in a lasting way. Marytown’s Buy-A-Bench program offers an opportunity for the faithful to provide a lasting tribute to their loved ones by sponsoring an engraved memorial bench. These classic 6 ft. benches are crafted in black onyx steel and include an engraved cast bronze plaque. They’re a beautiful and visible way to remember your loved ones.

Benches will be installed across the grounds of Marytown at the various shrine locations and garden areas. Choice of placement will be based on a first-come first-served basis.
