The parish began among Irish settlers sharing their vision and foresight with Father William Howard who crossed the river from St. Mary’s, Hudson to minister to their spiritual needs. He traveled many miles to bring the faith to the people where they were.
The faith is still strong here, fed by the memories of the many pastors who have preceded, yet handing on the stalwart spirit which marks St. Mary’s as a holy Church.
Together we have lived through many changes in the Church, yet retaining an inner strength and pride of faith which has been influenced not only by the quality of the structure, but also the quality of service which emanates readily from the people themselves.

Elderly & Homebound Connections
Please volunteer to make phone calls to the elderly of our parish (those ill seniors on our Pastoral Care List and others who are not on the list but still would enjoy some conversation).
Catechists for Children’s Liturgy of the Word
We hope to resume this option for our pre-K and elementary school kids in September at the 11:30 AM Masses. Open to youth and adult catechist volunteers (7th grade or older).
Faith Formation is the lifelong ongoing development and growth in the knowledge and experience of God through a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. We have many programs available, for both children and adults, to help us as we praise God, refresh our faith, and build our discipleship, growing week by week in our commitment to the Gospel.
