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 MARK PETERSON: TRANSCENDED
Every so often one gets the chance to witness something unique, something outside the expected norm. And occasionally that experience may serve to reinforce something you’ve always known somewhere deep within yourself. I had one of those experiences a week ago Monday evening when Saint Mary’s presented the first offering in its new Saint Cecilia Chamber Music Series, featuring Dr. Robert Cassidy and our newly acquired Knabe Grand Piano in Saint Joseph’s Hall. I knew we would draw people who loved the piano and the literature written for it, but I didn’t expect as informed or experienced an audience as we assembled.
