Pastor’s Welcome Letter

August 16, 2023

Father Boric was ordained a Catholic priest on June 21, 2014. Before coming to St. Mary’s in July 2023, Father was the Rector of the Basilica of the Assumption (America’s First Catholic Cathedral) in downtown Baltimore. As Rector, Father Boric founded a missionary program to form young people into disciples of Jesus Christ who then loved and served the homeless of the city. Father also began Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in Baltimore—so Jesus would be available to the people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Father loves Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church more than anything in the world. His primary passion is to teach the faith to people of all ages. At St. Mary School, Father James will help teach both Second and Eight grade religion classes so the children are well prepared for to receive the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation.

Father has a podcast site in which he publishes his Sunday homilies and talks on the beauty of the Catholic faith. You can visit that site by clicking here:

Finally, Father would like to invite anyone who is not Catholic to consider joining the Church. You may email him at if you have any questions.
