St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Dedham, MA Dolores Johnson
Welcome to St. Mary’s Parish
We are so happy and blessed to have you visit our website. St. Mary’s is a parish deeply rooted in the mission of the Church, where prayer and the sacraments are at the center of what we do. Our magnificent upper Church, dedicated in 1900, is the heart of our parish. In the lower level of the Church you will find Mary Hall, where many parish events take place. There you will also see the Life House, the location of our very vibrant Life Teen Youth Ministry Program, which is in it’s 20th year. The Parish Center houses the parish offices, and is located in the brick building behind the Church. The rectory is next to the Church. It is the residence of the parish priests, as well as for other priests with responsibilities throughout the Archdiocese. The priests and entire staff are here for you.

The Church is open daily from 7:00 am – 6:00 pm

Make St. Mary’s Your Spiritual Home
We would like to extend an invitation for you to join our parish. Each parishioner plays an important role in our life together. The celebration of the Eucharist is the heart of all activities. Come share your faith experience and yourself in one of our parish ministries. Please know that the doors to this Church and our hearts are open to each of you at all times.
October is Respect Life Month
Through-out the month of October, St. Mary’s will hold their parish “Baby Shower.” The Pregnancy Help Ministry, of the Pro-Life Office of the Archdiocese serves mothers and babies in need. Our sharing brings the love of God in a very special life affirming way. There is a Pack and Play and a basket at the entrance of the church where you can place your gifts. You will also find a list of the items most in need.
May the Lord of life bless you and your families in abundance.
The Pro-Life Committee.
