Saint Mary, Mother of the Church
As a Catholic body, we seek to develop and inspire families to be Christian, spiritual witnesses who live with God as their center and who strive for justice, peace, and a love which embraces all.
History of Our Parish
The parish was established in 1967 by the Most Reverend Bishop of Brownsville, Humberto Madeiros, D.D., who in 1970, was appointed by the Holy Father as Cardinal Archbishop of Boston.The first building was a mobile home for its first pastor, Rev. Monsignor Patrick Doherty. Sunday Mass was celebrated at Stell Intermediate School until May 31, 1970, when Cardinal Medeiros blessed the first two completed facilities, the school and the auditorium (the present Ferreira Parish Hall).
All are invited to the God house...
Mary, Mother of the Church seats 628 persons with 60 additional ones in the Chapel. There are parking facilities for 215 cars with additional parking available across both Barnard Road and Los Ebanos. Following modern church design, the seating is arranged in a fan shape with the sanctuary the focal point so that all are able to see and hear the Liturgy and fully participate. No one is farther than 12 pews form the altar.
