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: FRESH LOOKS
This spring and summer I’ve been working with two small leadership groups in the parish that I haven’t written much about, a Capital Campaign Committee and a Music Search Committee. Both committees have started their work, but there’s not a lot to tell yet. The members of the Capital Campaign Committee are MaryJane Boland, Steven Heffner, Clark Mitchell and Mark Risinger. The members of the Music Search Committee are Grace Bruni, James Dennis, Robin Landis, Mark Risinger and Geoffrey Williams. (Mark, who serves on both committees, is vice president of the board of trustees.)
