Welcome to St. Mary Parish

Welcome to St. Mary, Carlyle, website.

Our parish was founded in 1853 as the second oldest parish in Clinton County. The new church was dedicated in 1855 with the first baptism being in 1858. The church was damaged by a cyclone that swept through the area in April of 1905 and left the church in ruins. The loss was estimated at $75,000. After the church was rebuilt it was devastated again by a fire in May of 1940. By April of 1941 the church had been rebuilt once again. Again in July of 1968 the church was damaged by yet another tornado with an estimated cost of $50,000. The final damage to this parish came from a hail storm that swept the area in April of 1974. This storm shattered the stained glass windows and caused extensive exterior damage. After this storm is when heavy plate glass was used to reinforce the windows and serve as protection to prevent further damage.
