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

Greetings and welcome!

Welcome to our parish website!

Websites are established so that visitors to them may find immediate answers to questions or simply to offer information to inquiring minds. I hope our website does both. I hope that your visit to our website does more thing beyond answers and information.

I hope that you will invited to come to this parish if you are looking for a spiritual home either as a Catholic or as someone who is seeking a community whose witness to loving, serving and giving  is inspired by faith, that great gift God extends to us so that might know him in this world. This having been said, I rephrase my greeting…

Welcome to our parish!

Fr. Thomas Hallsten
Parochial Administrator
