 St. Mary's, Maujer Street

 


Most Holy Trinity and St. Mary's merged in 2007 in order to become one parish!

 


 

The Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (commonly called "St. Mary's") was founded in May of 1853; the first pastor of St. Mary's, the Rev. Peter McLoughlin, heroically served the Irish immigrants under his care.  On September 1, 2007, Most Holy Trinity and St. Mary's merged forming the new parish of Most Holy Trinity – St. Mary.   The final Sunday Mass at St. Mary's was celebrated on October 28, 2007; since that time the congregation of the newly formed parish has worshiped at the Most Holy Trinity site.

St. Mary's Church, formerly located at the corner of Leonard and Maujer Streets (five blocks away from Most Holy Trinity Church), was a good neighbor to Most Holy Trinity for more than one hundred and fifty years.  This photo was taken in September of 2005.  The two parishes merged under the name "Most Holy Trinity--St. Mary" in September of 2007.

The Christmas Creche as it appeared in the St. Mary's sanctuary (positioned just in front of the St. Joseph Altar).  This same manger scene, including the stable and trees, have been used at Most Holy Trinity--St. Mary since the merger in 2007.

This view is from the sanctuary looking back toward the entrance doors and the choir loft.  The gallery level of the church had not been used in years; it was said to have been unable to support the weight of many people and therefore unsafe.  The floors of St. Mary's always shined as they were always lovingly cleaned and maintained by parishioners and staff.
