Welcome to the website of St. Mary's Parish, located in the far West End of Richmond.

You will also find ways in which you can become involved, share your gifts and talents, and join us in our commitment to serving the people of God through the pillars of Word (catechesis, "passing on the faith" through faith formation and education), Worship (Liturgy, prayer, Sacraments), Service (answering the Gospel call to generously serve all our brothers and sisters) and Community (gathering as people of faith).
