St. Mary’s is a vibrant Roman Catholic parish located in downtown Rochester, NY. Our faith community is welcoming to all, and is nourished by the Sacraments, Scripture, music and celebrations grounded in the spirit of Vatican II. We strive to be a diverse population and are committed to bringing healing, justice and hope to each other and to the community at-large.
If you are looking for a Catholic Community to join, give St Mary’s a try. We anticipate that you find our parish to be warm and welcoming. Strike up a conversation with any staff member or greeter and they will try to answer questions you may have.
If you are a visitor to the area, you are most welcome to join us for our weekday liturgies, many concerts and other events. We hope that the space we share, our prayer and music will lift the hearts of any traveler.
St. Mary’s has a strong Social Ministry emphasis. We partner with many Rochester area agencies and seek to “Build the Kingdom” through a variety of ministry efforts.
