  • Summer 2020

    There are no daily or Sunday Masses scheduled for this summer. Because of the global pandemic, St. Mary‘s will remain closed to the public until further notice. The previously scheduled retreats and residencies led by Paulist Fathers in the months of June and July will be rescheduled for the summer of 2021.  The Paulists are disappointed but committed to the health and safety of all our friends and especially those most at risk including our senior Paulists. Check back for updates.
