Our last Sunday in the Church for liturgical celebrations was November 18th. Moving forward,  we shall celebrate all weekend Masses (Saturday 4:30pm Vigil, Sunday: 7:00am, 9:00am, 11:00am,  and 5:30pm) in the St. Mary School Gym. The Weekday 9:00am Masses and Saturday 8:00am Mass will be celebrated in the Parish Hall.  Confessions will be celebrated at 3:00pm in the Parish Hall.

St. Peter Church in Danbury has graciously invited us to celebrate all Funeral Masses at their Church. If you have a Funeral and prefer to go to another Church, we are most happy to make arrangements.

All Baptisms will be celebrated at St. Mary Parish Hall which will already be setup for weekday Masses.


Beginning in 1882, the Catholic Church has served the needs of the people of Bethel from a living room parlor on Grassy Plain Street, to the Church on Greenwood Avenue, to our current Church on Dodgingtown Road. Being the only Catholic Church in the town of Bethel, our parish community reaches to the surrounding towns of Danbury, Brookfield, Newtown and Redding. St. Mary Parish Center includes a beautiful church seating 850 worshippers, a parish hall, an active and thriving school, convent and rectory.
