Welcome! We are the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Maria Goretti, located in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Those Catholics regularly attending Mass are asked to register as members of the parish.

Faith Formation

Religious Education and Formation is an important part of any Catholic parish community. St. Maria Goretti strives to provide exceptional faith formation at any age. We are all called to participate in on-going faith formation!


Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. These ministries are necessary to insure our Masses at St. Maria Goretti are celebrated with full, active, and conscious participation.

Parish Life

Our shared life as a parish family goes beyond our normal worship and includes times of fellowship and celebration. Our parish life groups are ministries of service and hospitality.


St. Maria Goretti Outreach ministries are committed to serve those less fortunate. These ministries are necessary to insure those in need are served with dignity and compassion.

Safe Environment

Welcome to our parish website!

During these recent months of the pandemic, we have all adapted well to the situation even while it changes almost daily.


Kudos to those who have stayed home for almost a year now.  I know that isolation has been a tough situation.  Know that you are missed and I hope that how and when ever we have been able to reach out to you has been helpful.

Kudos to our staff and liturgical ministers who have to keep ‘our ship’ afloat in many unseen ways:

  • keeping the office open
  • continuing religious instructions via zoom and other social media
  • providing a welcoming and safe service at our liturgies
  • sanitizing our buildings (especially the church) after each use

Kudos to all parishioners who watch out for their neighbors and fellow parishioners by following our parish expectations of social distancing, wearing a mask over nose and mouth.
