 Welcome to St. Mary’s Parish Web site

     What a wonderful, rich heritage we share at St. Mary’s. Since 1894 Roman Catholics in Brantford have been coming together here to worship, to receive the sacraments, to be married, attend our schools and to share in the many spiritual and social activities that make us a family. Today through the marvels of the internet we are able to reach out and keep you up to date on what is happening in our parish community. We sincerely hope that you enjoy browsing through our web site and that perhaps you will find something in these pages that will help you on your spiritual journey. We highly recommend that you check out some of the sites that are listed on our LINKS page. If you are a newcomer to the area or if you have been away from the Church for a period of time, we extend a warm invitation to you to join us in celebrating Holy Mass in the near future.
