We evangelize within the parish through Liturgical ministries, Faith Formation ministries and Home Visitation ministries. We have maintained and supported St. Mary School providing excellence in Catholic education for over 75 years. Our parish evangelizes the Goldsboro community through the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, Soup Kitchen volunteers, and the support of the Wayne Pregnancy Care Center. We also support our sister parish, Holy Trinity, in Williamston, NC. Our parish is the home of the Knights of Columbus, Council # 5487, and a chapter of the Legion of Mary.
