Celebration of a New Ministry – Installation Ceremony

Join us on November 19th at 6:30 pm as the Rt. Rev. Andrew Dietsche installs the Rev. H. Dagnall Free, Jr. as 17th rector of St. Mary’s, Castleton.  A reception will follow in the parish hall.


Welcome to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church (Castleton) on Staten Island. Established in 1848, we treasure our traditions while meeting today with grace.  We are a parish in the Episcopal Church, which is a province of the Anglican Communion.

We are a fully welcoming community valuing Scripture, tradition, liturgy, and Christian formation.   We serve one Lord, Jesus Christ.  Worship is centered in the Holy Eucharist, using the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, Rite I.

Our 8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist is a simple and intimate service in which our congregants are nourished in the Body and Blood of Christ and immersed in the Word.

Our principal service is the 10:00 a.m. Choral Eucharist.  Our active Sunday school meets from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m., then joins the congregation for the remainder of the service.

We invite you to join the community of St. Mary’s!

Our Parish Prayer

Holy God, Father Almighty, whose most dear Son prayed that we all might be one; bless and unite the people of St. Mary’s in our common mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in whose Holy Name we pray. Amen.
