Parish Life

St. Mary’s is a vibrant parish with many opportunities to share time, talent and stewardship with fellow parishioners as well as the community at large.

Once a month, the 11:00 AM Sunday Mass is hosted by a different grade school classes.  Join us for this special Mass and stay for a Parish Wide social gathering afterwards in the Katari Undercroft.

The Sunday after Labor Day, the 11:00 AM Mass is held at Glimmerglass State Park on the edge of Otsego Lake.  This beautiful ceremony is a great way to unite with friends as the summer comes to a close.  Stay for an incredible BBQ feast prepared by Brian Wrubleski.  This event has become a must do at St. Mary’s!!
