Our Difference

Our Parish

Saint Mary Catholic Church is the third oldest Catholic church building in Columbus, Ohio and is home to an active parish in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus. The Church's purpose and mission is centered in Christ and the Eucharist. We seek to be of one mind and heart with the Church by loving God with all our heart, all our mind, all our strength, all our soul; and by loving our neighbor as ourselves.

Saint Mary Catholic Church is located in the heart of the school’s campus and holds regular Mass and church events. For service details including Mass and confession schedules, youth and adult programs and more, please visit their website at https://southcolscatholic.org

Events & Fundraisers

At Saint Mary School, we offer a challenging and enriching Catholic education to hundreds of students each year. For many of our families, a private education would not be possible because of financial hardships, but by the grace of God, these families are able to receive scholarships and assistance to make it possible to attend a Catholic school. We cannot do this without our annual fundraisers and generous gifts from benefactors like you!
