The Church of St. Mary of St. Paul

About Us

The Church of St. Mary is a Roman Catholic Parish established in 1865. The Eucharist, sacraments and devotions are central to our parish life. Members can participate in liturgical and music ministries. We offer religious education for youth. Staffed by Sons of the Immaculate Conception. Our pastor is Fr. Jimmy Puttananickal, CFIC. The celebration of Eucharist expresses the essence of our parish life. St. Mary’s parish musicians strive to illuminate the richness of scriptural and sacramental experience, and to enhance the beauty of the liturgy through their sung prayer. The parish choir leads music at the Sunday 10:30am Mass September through May, for Advent Vespers, Christmas, Holy Week and Easter, and for special parish celebrations. Its repertory spans traditional to contemporary chants and hymns, and includes sacred choral literature of seven centuries. The parish piano-guitar ensemble leads music at the 4:30pm Mass on Saturday and offers a mix of traditional hymnody and the best of Catholic contemporary ritual music.

Church of St Mary will be participating in a parish-wide survey!

St Mary’s will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute as part of the Archdiocesan Synod Process! We need your help!

Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online. The survey can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or computer at from February 1 – March 1 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be valuable to Archbishop Hebda, Father Jimmy and our parish as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring, at which time we will share with you what we have learned.

If you don’t use a smartphone, tablet or computer - there will be opportunities to complete the survey after daily and Sunday Mass. You can also obtain a paper copy by contacting the parish office.

Thank you for helping with this important project!
