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: LOOKING AHEAD
Lent is underway at Saint Mary’s. Ash Wednesday was a very cold day in the city, but still there were people waiting for the first Mass and for ashes when the doors opened at 7:00 AM. The last person receiving ashes got them in Saint Joseph’s Hall just after 8:00 PM. I was on ash duty again at the very end of the day—and was able to give ashes to a very grateful man who had slipped in as the last set of doors was closing. It was a good beginning for Lent. There’s more to come, and I would like to tell you about it.
