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.

FROM THE RECTOR: JOYFUL TRIDUUM
Father Jay Smith and I went out into Times Square about twenty minutes before 11:00 AM on Palm Sunday. There’s construction everywhere, lots of equipment in the roads. The procession made it into and around the square thanks especially to a few of our fearless ushers. The more limited space wasn’t a problem, perhaps it even helped. I can’t remember a more joyful Palm Sunday.
