Welcome to St. Mary’s!
Welcome to the online home of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Kutztown! Whether you are a long-time Catholic, new to the area, considering the Catholic faith or just passing through…. please join us, as we strive to follow Jesus Christ our Lord.
He is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). He has conquered sin and death, and calls to each heart — “Come, follow me!”
Holy Season of Advent
With the first Sunday of Advent on December 2, the Church throughout the world begins the new liturgical year, as we await the coming of Christ.
Advent is a season of waiting – of reflection and expectation. During the latter part of Advent, we remember the first coming of Christ – when the Son of God became Man, born of the Blessed Virgin Mary. But during this first part of Advent, the Church leads us to turn our hearts and minds, to look forward to the Second Coming of Christ at the end of time.
As we begin Advent, let’s resolve to turn down the noise of the culture, and tune in to the Voice of the Lord. Stay awake, and draw nearer to the One who will come again!
Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
On December 8, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception – a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics. At St. Mary’s, Masses for the Holy Day will be Thursday, December 7 at 7pm, and on Friday, December 8, at Noon and 7pm. Let us praise God for His beautiful gift of the Blessed Mother Mary!
