History of Saint Mary's Parish

posted Mar 11, 2019, 10:38 AM by Augustine Curley

Fr. Augustine is beginning work on a scholarly history of St. Mary's Parish, tentatively entitled "Neither Territorial nor National: An Urban Benedictine Parish Forges Its Own Path." He will be looking to interview people who were members of the parish over the years, or who attended Saint Mary's Grammar School. He would also be interested in hearing from people who helped St. Mary's with the urban outreach in the 1960s. He can be reached via e-mail: acurley @ sbp.org.
