Welcome to Home



Welcome to St. Mary Church in Glasgow, MO. Affectionately known as "Saint Mary's," this parish is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. She leads us to Jesus, her Son, as His first and greatest disciple, whom He made our spiritual Mother. We belong to the Diocese of Jefferson City, led by our Bishop, Shawn McKnight, in communion with our Holy Father, Pope Francis.

Public Mass Resume Tuesday

This means that we will be able to have Masses once again on weekdays and on the weekends, but we will also have to bear in mind the need for those who are sick or who are caring for the sick to remain in their homes.  If you are concerned about the virus please wear a mask when coming to Mass.  We will be simplifying the Mass on the weekends by having no servers, Extra-ordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, Lectors or Choir.  There will be no music at least for the next few weeks, no Sign of Peace and no offertory procession.  A collection basket will be available at the entrances of the Church but will not be brought up during Mass.  We have been asked to keep “social distancing” so please do not “bunch up” unless you are a family.  Thank you once again and God Bless all of you.

Alternative Tithing Method

In these trying times, with many individuals remaining at home to avoid the coronavirus, we wanted to remind everyone of ways to still give to the church to ensure we can still make payroll and pay our bills:

• Check mailed to St. Mary Catholic Church (421 3rd St., Glasgow, MO, 65254).

• Credit card via our website (https://www.glasgowstmary.com/). Click the “Donate Now” button at the top of the page.

• Utilize online bill pay wherever you bank, utilizing St. Mary Parish as a “biller”. Contact your bank if you have more questions on this.

• If you bank at Tri-County Trust Company, you can contact them about setting up an “automatic transfer” from your bank account to St. Mary’s bank account.

• If you receive your paycheck electronically, you can inquire from your workplace about sending part of your paycheck to St. Mary Catholic Church. Contact Tri-County Trust Company for assistance filling out this form for your employer.

Thank you so much for your generosity in this difficult time.

Launch of the 2020 Capital Campaign

Dear Friends of St. Mary’s Parish,

We are currently entering into the first stages of our Capital Campaign to address the ongoing task of preserving and repairing our parish property. Ever since the founding of the Parish, the goodness and generosity of so many have helped to raise up a beautiful church to worship in, a school to educate many generations of children and to continue to care for these precious treasures for many generations to come.

Tithing Electronically

*Want to ensure your tithing is consistent?

*Want to ensure God gets your “first fruits” (Exodus 23:19, and many times in Old Testament) and not the leftovers”?


Consider tithing electronically.  If you are out of town for the weekend, or you forget your tithing envelope or check book on the way to Mass, you don’t have to worry about it if you tithe electronically.  It provides you with a simple, easy, consistent way to tithe.  It also helps the parish with financial planning and responsibilities when tithing is consistent. 

Thank you very much for your support of St. Mary Parish!
