Saint Mary's Times Square:
Welcome and Worship

 Saint Mary's was founded in 1868 to be the Episcopal parish church for the new residential neighborhood, then called Longacre Square, here in midtown Manhattan. Our doors have been open daily for welcome and worship since December 8, 1870. Hundreds of visitors discover us for the first time every day of the week. All are welcome. Our members and friends now live both near and far from Times Square. We invite you to join us.

FROM THE RECTOR:
MORE FROM SAINT MARK


Until Father Pete Powell introduced me to Ulrich Luz’s commentary on Matthew, I never found the commentaries I owned very useful for preaching. Luz changed my mind about how I think about commentaries and how I read them. Now I have another one that I value highly, Joel Marcus’s two-volume commentary on Mark (Anchor Yale Bible series). The current lectionary year is the second time I have been working with it. Marcus gives his readers a sense of the perspective and the unity of the whole of Mark’s gospel. Unfortunately, this sense is missing from the structure of our lectionary, both of the original 1979 lectionary, which we use, and of the Revised Common Lectionary, now used in most parishes. Fortunately, there is something we can do about it. The Prayer Book gives us this permission, “Any Reading may be lengthened at discretion. Suggested lengthenings are shown in parentheses” (BCP, 888). Read More
