I’m New Here

What Can I Expect?

The members, friends and staff of Old St. Mary look forward to welcoming you. We invite you to join us for any of the worship services, faith formation or service opportunities we offer as a way to get to know us better as you seek your place in a community of faith. All are welcome to join us in worship and at any events as we seek lives of greater balance and spiritual growth.

When you arrive at Old St. Mary, located downtown at 844 N Broadway, you will find our parking lot behind the church at Kilbourn Avenue and Milwaukee Street. Our Handicap Access is located at the parking lot entrance. There is a hallway ramp that will take you in to the church.

Feel free to find a place to sit where you will feel comfortable or ask an usher to seat you. As the music plays, we invite you into a time of reflection as we prepare ourselves for worship.

After Mass, an usher will give you a copy of the bulletin for the week. The bulletin will provide the weekly Masses, times and intentions and a variety of information about upcoming events and ministry opportunities. These ushers are available to answer your questions and help you find your way in our church. You will also find plenty of people sharing conversations in the church after worship and you are welcome to ask for help from anyone you see.

We know that the church is an important institution in the lives of many, especially at significant transition points in life. If you are interested in having a wedding at Old St. Mary, please contact the parish office at least six months before your wedding date.
