Welcome to St. Mary’s! Thank you for for visiting our new website.
Since becoming pastor of St. Mary’s in August 2018, I have never felt more blessed and excited to teach and share the Truth of the Catholic Faith. This beautiful community, our wonderful parish, has such a rich story rooted in that Truth, and we'd love to have you be a part of it!
That story began in 1881 when God gave a small group of miners a mission. A mission to bring to these mountains the world’s greatest treasure. A mission to bring to Park City the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Eucharist, and the Faith and Charity that flow from Him.
For generations since, that mission has been the foundation of St. Mary’s and a crucial pillar of the greater Park City community. And today, that mission continues!
Each week, St. Mary’s provides the sacraments to thousands of local parishioners and visitors alike. The parish forms hundreds of children in the faith through our religious education programs. The Church community feeds and cloths the hungry through our food bank and thrift store and partners with dozens of the areas best charitable organizations to educate and provide for those most in need.
