Welcome to our Church
St. Mary's Church, located in Chatfield, Minnesota, is a member of the Tri-parish cluster including St. Columban's of Preston, MN, and St. Patrick's of Lanesboro, MN. Our membership of just over 300 families strives to live out our mission statement "..to pass on a living faith to future generations." We invite others to rejoice with us as we celebrate our faith together as God's family. We strive to share with others our life-giving values and to develop the skills and vision of future leaders of the church through the act of ministering to the needs of all, for a better Christian Cummunity.
On July 1, 2015, Father Will Thompson began serving St. Mary's and the cluster as parochial administrator, which means he will be with us for at least a year to finish the assignment of Fr. Arens and work with us during the Pastoral Planning Implementation. You can contact him at the Rectory at 867-3148 or through the Parish Center Office at 867-3922.
If you would like more information about St. Mary's or wish to register, please contact Father Thompson or Therese Opat at the Parish Center Office. Registering allows us to keep you informed of what is happening in the Parish and is especially important for families of school age children. Registration information includes the data that puts families into the Religious Education Contact list.
