Welcome

Are you looking for a dynamic community of disciples, a place to call your  spiritual home? Here at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Gloucester City, we  strive to answer Christ's call of loving self-sacrifice - through our  participation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, through our communal and  individual prayer, through our study of Scripture, and through our service  to the community around us. With God's grace, we aim to become "doers  of the Word," so that all people may experience the Good News and the  healing presence of Jesus Christ. We welcome you!
