WELCOME FR. BRIAN!!
We welcome Fr. Brian Wayne to St. Mary’s as our thirty-ninth pastor.
Fr. Wayne began his assignment here on June 17 and joins us after having served as Chaplain at Millersville University and as the Vocations Director at the Diocese of Harrisburg. We look forward to your leadership into the future here at St. Mary’s!
Established in 1741, this beautiful church stands as a symbol of the vitality and dedication of Catholic life in Lancaster. We have the distinguished honor of being the fourth oldest Catholic Church in the original thirteen colonies and the added blessing of Mary, the Blessed Virgin of the Assumption, as our patroness. In addition, our church was granted a special spiritual bond with the Papal Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome in February 2009 (more info). Look beyond the beautiful sacramental signs of handcrafted marble statuary, stained glass windows and carved altars, and you will see a special mosaic…not of sculptures or paintings, but a mosaic of people from different cultures, economic backgrounds, and ages all gathering together to pray and serve the Lord.
In Christ’s Peace,
Rev. Brian J. Wayne, Pastor
