  • A Note from Father Ringley—Una nota del padre Ringley
    This week I repeat the brief update on the financial situation of the parish which I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. The weekly Offertory Collection is our primary source of income. We are grateful to all who have continued to give on a regular…
  • A Note from Fr. Ringley/MENSAJE DEL PADRE RINGLEY
    As we begin to move more toward “normal”, I have tried to put together a “State of the Parish” report to update you on where we stand. In the first place, I am happy to report that more people are feeling comfortable about returning to…

    I am pleased to announce that plans for renovation of the parking lot have been finalized. All we await is a starting date. The parking lot will be inaccessible for approximately four days. Obviously, we will ensure that it is available for the usual weekend…

    Thank you to all who have welcomed me back home to St. Mary’s. My two weeks at Magdalene College of the Liberal Arts were very productive and inspiring. Each summer for nine years I have served as the chaplain, and music and catechism teacher for…

St Mary's exteriorWelcome to St. Mary’s! 

We invite you to explore our unique, vibrant, multi-ethnic community that is unified in its reverence to the Trinitarian God in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  We offer reverent Masses in English, Spanish, and Latin: the mystical Mass of countless Saints since the early days of the Church.

Masses are complemented by our high-caliber music program, offering you an opportunity to encounter the artistic treasures of the Church in a way that is rarely found today.  We have social groups, festivals, weekly coffee hour after 9:30 Mass, and processions on feasts through the streets of Norwalk – all fostering a united community of faith from a diverse group of parishioners.

Join welcoming groups that offer opportunities to participate in Catholic devotional practices. Enroll in a religious education class or bible study to deepen your faith.

If you live nearby (or even if you are just in the area for the day) please stop in and visit our parish for Mass.  Make yourself known – we look forward to meeting you!
