Welcome to Saint Mary Parish


                                          UPDATED INFORMATION
Dear Friends in Christ,
    Beginning May 21st, Bishop Caggiano has given permission for outdoor Masses with groups no larger than 50 people. However, the obligation to attend Mass is still suspended. The elderly, those in a high-risk group, or anyone who is not feeling well, should not attend Mass. Outdoor Masses are left to the discretion of the Pastor of each parish. No one is obligated to attend these outdoor Masses. 
    As we do not have a parking lot, we will celebrate Mass outside on the patio next to the Parish Hall. This patio can be accessed by walking behind the Church and up several stairs.  There will be no access through the Church or the Parish Center.
    In order to attend this Mass, you must make a reservation in advance by calling the Parish Office on Thursday or Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and speak to our receptionist. Please do not leave a reservation on voicemail; you must speak to a person to confirm a reservation. Voicemail reservations cannot be honored.
    In normal circumstances St. Mary is happy to welcome anyone to worship with us. However, in these difficult times and with limited seating available, reservations are limited for now to registered parishioners only. If you are not a registered parishioner of St. Mary Parish, I am sorry to say we will not be able to give you a reservation. It pains me to have to be so strict, but it is only right that our parishioners are able to attend Mass in their parish.
    If you decide to make a reservation please keep the following in mind:

  • You MUST wear a mask at all times.
  • Please bring your own folding chair and place it on an
    orange X marked on the patio.
  • You may wish to bring an umbrella for shade.
  • Maintain social distance at all times.
  • Bathrooms are closed and the elevator is not available.
  • You are asked not to congregate before or after Mass.
  • Follow the directions of our volunteers.
  • In the event of rain Mass will be cancelled.

    Please remember that caring for the safety of others is an act of charity. We will begin to distribute Holy Communion this weekend at Mass. Please listen carefully and follow the instructions regarding the reception of Holy Communion. It is important that everyone follow directions in order to avoid spreading COVID-19.
    The Sunday Mass schedule will be 9:00am and 12 noon. Additional Masses will be added if needed. Members of the parish can make reservations by calling the parish office 203.869.9393 on Thursday and Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and speak directly to a member of our staff.
    We will continue to stream Mass daily at Noon on our Facebook page. I am delighted that we can finally begin, at least in a limited way, to celebrate Holy Mass together again. I am truly sorry for all the restrictions that are in place, but they are necessary for the safety of all. We all want to make sure we do our part to keep everyone safe so that our lives can get back to normal as quickly as possible.
    Please keep me in your prayers and know that you are in mine.
                                                                           Sincerely in Christ,

    Saint Mary Church, Greenwich is pleased to be able to offer public worship again. The parish is taking precautions per the CDC and Governor Lamont’s recommendations regarding public gatherings, as well as our own precautions we feel are prudent under the circumstances. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Mass, but please understand there are risks involved in attending a public worship in a pandemic despite all of the precautions taken by the parish and the diocese.
    We ask your cooperation with all of the directives that have been put in place for your safety and the safety of our clergy and your fellow worshipers.

Revised Liturgical Norms

   When the liturgical reforms of the second Vatican council were promulgated, the lives of many of the faithful were disrupted because they were neither informed nor prepared for the changes to come. As we look forward to the promulgation of our own revised liturgical norms, Bishop Caggiano is committed to avoiding that same mistake.  
   The Revised Liturgical Norms for the Diocese of Bridgeport will be promulgated on the first Sunday of Advent, December 2, 2018. Between now and then, we will embark on a comprehensive catechetical and communication strategy so that when the norms are made public, there is a more complete understanding of what we aim to do, namely, raise awareness of and commitment to a celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that is both faithful and universal.  
   In the video
here, Bishop Caggiano outlines the timeline for catechesis, makes the case for why we are revising the norms, and invites everyone to participate in this process. You may see the norms and download a copy in English and Spanish by clicking here.
