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. 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:
When I began attending the Leadership in Ministry workshops, one of the rites of passage, as it were, was to watch the 1995 movie Cold Comfort Farm
. It’s hilarious, but it’s also very much a “family systems” story. I watched the 2015 movie Spotlight
this week. It is not a comedy, but it is very much a family systems theory movie. I had forgotten it won the Academy Award for best picture in January. It is based on a familiar and all-too-real, tragic story.
