Welcome to Saint Mary Parish in the Diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut.


A reminder that there will be no 5:30PM MASS ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12TH AND NO DAILY MASS ON MONDAY, TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13,14,15 because all the priests will be on the Diocesan Convocation in Rhode Island with all the other priests of the Diocese. We will have a communion service at 9am on Monday through Wednesday at 9am. The Diocese has arranged that each parish, hospital and nursing home will have emergency coverage by a priest. Deacons will also be on call to assist in every way that they can.

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 Sister Anne McCarthy SSND, Sister Alberta SSND, 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, Pat Jackson and Julie Doerner, our Deacon John DeRoin and our priests Father Rolando Arias and Father Chris Perrella, 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.

Visit our website and visit us in person – you are most welcomed to our community!

God Bless!
Father Corey Piccinino
