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: NEW SOUNDS
The new sound system was installed in the church this past week. As I write on Friday morning, May 17, it’s looking and sounding really good. It is not inappropriate that the new system is ready for this Sunday, the Day of Pentecost, on which we recall, among other things, the gift of speaking in tongues recounted in the New Testament. The new system cost $21,618 and has been paid for by the special gifts of the parish community at Easter. Every worshiper in this church will be thankful for these gifts for years to come.
