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: FINDING MORE EASTER
One of my favorite collects begins, “Almighty and everlasting God, increase in us the gifts of faith, hope, and charity” (The Book of Common Prayer , 235). Since the deaths in 2013 of my mother and last Christmas of my father, I sense that I have experienced an increase in faith. The experience has not been any kind of reverie or dream, but a greater, almost physical, awareness of interior space, a very quiet place. No words, just awareness.
