New Parishioners


As Pastor of Saint Mary’s Parish, I wish to welcome you to Saint Mary’s. I invite you to celebrate your faith throughout the year in the various liturgies, social activities and services that we offer.  I pray that you will grace us by attending Mass with us every Sunday.

We have a variety of programs and activities to meet the needs of people of all ages. The Parish Council works faithfully to coordinate all programs so that we may grow in love for God and in service to one another.  The weekly parish bulletin contains a schedule of events in many areas, sponsored by the various parish groups.

Financial support is very important for our parish to thrive.  I encourage you to use the envelopes that will be sent to you once you register or to use our electronic banking option found on the Finance Office page of this website.  We also need your creative spirit and participation.  I hope you will become involved in our various church functions and/or service projects.

Our Pastoral staff consists of myself,  Deacon Donald J. Higby and our Pastoral Minister, Sr. Melinda Pellerin, SSJ.  Please feel free to contact Karen Casella, the parish secretary at 413-567-3124 if we can help you in any way.  Remember, if you or someone dear to you is sick at home or in the hospital, please call us so we can visit them.

Once again, welcome to Saint Mary’s and I pray that you will always feel at home here.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rev. Christopher J. Waitekus, Pastor
