Our Mission

St. Mary’s parish is dedicated to providing the pastoral care of the Kildare and Lyndon Station area. Founded by Irish immigrants 165 years ago, St. Mary’s mission is to provide the spiritual welfare of both those passing through and those who call St. Mary’s home.

We take care of everyone and offer a great spiritual experience at Mass. We serve the needs of the larger surrounding community, fostering hope and charity for all peoples. We offer healing, guidance and spiritual care. We seek to reach out, teach and evangelize those who are in need.

This is our mission and the saving mission of Christ. St. Mary’s is a beacon of light, a refuge for people and a home for all who seek God.
