St. Mary’s Episcopal Church is one of ten Episcopalian parishes on Staten Island, which work together as the Richmond Interparish Council. These churches include The Church of St Andrew, Christ Church New Brighton, St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, Church of the Ascension, St. Simon’s Episcopal Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, and St. John’s Church.
We are also part of the Staten Island Council of Churches. The Council is an intentionally ecumenical organization that provides opportunities for the churches on Staten Island to manifest the unity that is envisioned in the High Priestly Prayer of Jesus. The purpose of the Council is to encourage and facilitate ministry, celebration and mission that are reflective of the common call we share in and through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Council strives to uphold the diversity of the gifts of each member congregation and organization by utilizing these gifts in our common ministry within the community and the larger world.
