Welcome to St. Mary's website. We hope that what you find here will enrich your faith and strengthen you on your personal faith journey.
Our parish is the oldest parish in Baldwinsville. We were founded in 1852, some thirty years before Syracuse became a diocese. Our first church was located on Tappan Street, opposite Riverview cemetery and moved into the present building in August of 1940. Fr. Kirchen also founded St. Mary's Academy and our campus remains one of the most beautiful spots on Syracuse Street.
St. Mary's Parish has a strong liturgical tradition. Our weekend liturgies celebrate the many aspects of our Catholic faith with joy and enthusiasm. All are invited to full and active participation in our liturgical celebrations. Our music ministry is of the highest quality and we pride ourselves in the wonderful program of music that our organist and choir provide for us Sunday after Sunday.
We also have a rich history of being present for the spiritual and temporal needs of those who are parishioners and the wider Baldwinsville community as well. We maintain a strong commitment to serving the poor and the needy of our area in many of our annual drives and seasonal activities.
Our school prides itself in being amoung the top in the Syracuse area in the academic achievement, with state test scores well above average. Our teachers are committed to a solid curriculum which prepares our children for higher studies and a strong Catholic education that is an important foundation for their lives.
The Parish Staff are more than willing to serve you and answer any needs or questions that you might have. Contact any one of us, and we will be glad to help you.
