About St. Mary Delaware


Mission Statement

Under the patronage of Our Blessed Mother, and rooted in the Roman Catholic faith since 1835, Delaware St. Mary is a vital and vibrant community that engages the living God in worship and prayer, and in Word and Sacrament. Led by the Holy Spirit, and imploring the intercession of St. Mary, we desire to imitate her role of being the Christ bearer, and bear witness to her Son’s redeeming love that has been poured upon us in Baptism, and sustained by the practices and teachings of the Church.
