St. Mary’s is the only Catholic parish on Nantucket, 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Founded in 1897, this church has continuously served the island and its people. Located at 3 Federal St, Nantucket, MA 02554, the church offers various services, such as weddings, baptisms, mass services, and confessions.

Visitors can call the parish office (508-228-0100) for more information or visit their website ( for Mass times and a mass schedule. Through its long history, St. Mary’s has been not only a place of worship but also a source of love and community for the islanders of Nantucket.

For more than a century the parish arranges the Annual Summer St. Mary’s Summer Fair. It has become their largest single social and fundraising event. Stop by the fair for an abundance of handmade trinkets, delicious food and drinks, a silent auction, and good family fun.

Another special tradition is held on Good Friday. Parishioners from St. Mary’s are doing a reenactment of the Stations of the Cross at St. Mary’s Cemetery as part of the church’s Holy Week observances.

If you live on Nantucket, or if you are just visiting this beautiful island we call home, please join us for Mass, celebrating the life-giving power of joy in the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord.
