Saint Mary’s is open

and the regular services of the Church

are offered daily.


Please see the parish calendar

for the service schedule.



Saint Mary's was founded in 1868 with two great purposes... It was to be the parish church for the neighborhood - then called Longacre Square, here in midtown Manhattan; and the parish was founded to be a witness to catholic Christian tradition within the Episcopal Church. We remain committed to catholic Christian witness as we seek to embody and extend the love God has shown for us in Jesus Christ. Our members and friends now live both near and far from Times Square. Please join us.

The members of the noonday congregation have heard me talk more than once about the four barbers who work in the shop on Forty-sixth Street, across the street from the church. Eleazar, Sergei, and Raphael were all born in the former Soviet Union and emigrated to the United States after 1989. Ray is the youngest of the four. He was born in the States, I think, but he has also lived in Israel. (This is a polyglot bunch. On any given day, one might hear Russian, Uzbek, or Hebrew being spoken in the shop, in addition to English.) All four of my barbers are Jewish. I enjoy talking to all of them, though I talk about different sorts of things depending on whose chair I’m sitting in. Eleazar is the owner of the shop, and so we talk about the neighborhood. “When are you taking the scaffolding down?” he asks. “Soon!” I reply. Sergei and I talk about language. Raphael is quiet, focused on his work. Ray is the most religiously observant, and so we talk about religious customs and about the Bible. Read More
