A place to belong in Christ
Welcome to St. Mary's
"A place to belong in Christ"
St. Mary's is a parish in the town of Cochrane, Alberta, and part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary.
For over 125 years, our church has strived to be a welcoming place where people’s lives can be transformed by the love of God encountered in Scripture, in the sacraments, and in fellowship with one another.
Whether you’re a practicing Catholic or someone who’s been away from the Church for awhile, we welcome you here to our parish community, invite you to encounter Christ, and join us in the work of building his Kingdom.
