Dear Parishioners of St. Mary,
As the Church of St. Mary approaches its Bicentennial, we ask you, our parishioners, to take a moment to provide us with basic contact information about yourselves and your household. This will help us better communicate with you and serve the parish.
All information you provide will only be viewed by St. Mary parish staff and limited volunteers I’ve selected to help with parish communications. Your information will never be shared with a 3rd party.
Please visit the survey below using a computer, tablet, or your smartphone. Thank you for helping us better serve our parish by providing us with some information about yourselves.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Andrew O’Connor

A small gift of a few loaves of bread and a few fish was necessary to Jesus’ miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fish. Such miracles have been a consistent legacy of our church. St. Mary’s gave a gift of more than three thousand dollars in 1847 to the victims of the famine. Care for orphans by an Irish Immigrant janitorat St. Mary’s who became a priest led to the purchase of the “Protectorate” (now St. Raymonds cemetery and environs) as well as Mount Loretto on Staten Island. 80% of indigent children in NYC in 1880 were cared for Irish nuns, the aftermath of Fr. Drumgoole’s work. In modern times Msgr. Keogh established the Grand Street Guild in 1962 and turned derelict land around the church into 3 high rise apartment building for low income housing which he meant for people “of all faiths and no faith.”
