Our Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Masses during the Lenten Season will be celebrated in St. Mary’s Chapel on the lower ground floor of the Rectory. The Rectory is the building (house with wrap-around porch) on the right-hand side of the Church as you face it (Susquehanna Street side.) Entrance to the Chapel can be easily gained through the Rectory’s open garage doors, and then make an immediate left. Chapel is also accessible by elevator from the first floor of the Rectory where the Parish Office is located. Chapel is not only a beautiful grotto, but is also heated and a toilet is available on the same floor. Parking is available in the lower driveway near the garage doors.

On the chilly evening of December 2, 1024, great warmth was enjoyed, as the first Mass was celebrated in the intimate and humble setting of St. Mary’s new rectory chapel in the basement. Father Andrew Cryans was the concelebrant with Father John Rosson in this most personal Mass, resurrecting otherwise “wasted” space as well as pictures, the altar, the tabernacle, etc. from various parishioners and priest throughout the history of St. Mary’s. The Mass was dedicated to the memories of Fr. Cryans’ brother Jeffrey, Julie Auriemma’s husband Tom as well as Cathy Raddatz’s brother George who perished on 9-11. Those parishioners in attendance were Jean and Lou Nicholson, Jessica Root, Laura Jane Alexander, Julie Auriemma, Suzanne and John Rudy, Betsy Jay, Cathy Raddatz and Donna Gerard. This cost-saving chapel will be used for all regularly scheduled weekday Masses on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
