“Our Mission is to proclaim the good news as School Sisters of Notre Dame, directing our entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. As He was sent to show the Father’s love to the world, we are sent to make Christ visible by our very being, by sharing our love, faith, and hope." — You Are Sent — Constitution of the School Sisters of Notre Dame

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 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 Youth Minister Dean Aufiero, 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
