Deacon Perfecto Santiago

Sunday, March 3 - Keesler Center

following the 12:30pm Mass

Deacon Perfecto has been at St. Mary of the Mills for almost 20  years and has touched the lives of so many people in our parish community through his beautiful homilies, distributing Holy Communion, visiting the sick and homebound, Baptizing approximately 300 people, and much, much more. He has been an active member of the Knights of Columbus, led bible studies and trips abroad, coordinated the Bazaar and the International Festival. His presence will be missed. We love you “Doc” and wish you all the best in your retirement!


All are welcome at Deacon Perfecto’s farewell reception on Sunday, March 3. We will gather after the 12:30pm Mass in the Msgr. Keesler Parish Center for refreshments and fellowship and to share our stories of Perfecto. A special presentation is scheduled for 2:00pm.


Parishioners wishing to help provide refreshments for the event are asked to visit the Sign Up Genius at Others wishing to help serve or clean up should call the parish office at 301-725-3080.
