Who we are

St. Mary Church seeks to implement the New Evangelization through a renewal in the sacred liturgy, recognizing that as in the early Church, Christ is most powerfully manifested to individuals "in the breaking of the bread" (Luke 24:35). The parish offers both the Extraordinary and Ordinary Forms of the Roman Rite, "one set alongside the other" (Universae Ecclesiae, 6), with all its music and ceremony, in continuity with the Catholic Church's tradition. "What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too.... It behooves all of us to preserve the riches which have developed in the Church’s faith and prayer, and to give them their proper place" (Summorum Pontificum). The more than 30 nationalities represented in the parish are united in their devotion to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

St. Mary Church teaches the truths of the Catholic faith in their entirety, recognizing that "the truth will set you free" (John 8:32), and that our spiritual heritage is an inexhaustible treasure that has helped countless souls throughout history achieve holiness of life.

Voiceover: "This Mass is the very touchstone of Catholic tradition…. This recovery of the sacred is inextricably linked to the recovery of the Catholic faith as a faith that is living, that is joyful, that is beautiful, a faith that is a light in the deepening darkness of a world in thrall to the gray eminence…. How blessed is this parish to be at the very forefront of the return to Catholic tradition that is embedded in this Mass." —Fr. Richard G. Cipolla
