Welcome to Saint Mary Parish in the Diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Beginning in 1882, the Catholic Church has served the needs of the people of Bethel from the Town Hall, to the Church on Greenwood Avenue, or 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.
With the dedication of our school principal Mr. Greg Viceroy, our Director of Religious Education Mary Ferri, our Music Director Michael Ferrari, our Choir Director Elizabeth Barnes, our Plant Manager Paul Orsino, our Rectory Staff Kate Fitzgerald, Peg Gavin and Julie Doerner, our Deacon John DeRoin and our Parochial Vicars Father Rob Wolfe and Father Philip Phan, we serve a vibrant, dynamic, faith-filled community that brings the message of the Gospel, the guidance of the Church, the grace of the Sacraments and the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to the world around us.
