St Mary's Roman Catholic Church

Local nameSt Mary's Roman Catholic Church
LocationAlbany, New York, USA

St. Mary's Church is a Roman Catholic house of worship on Lodge Street in downtown Albany, New York, United States. It is a brick structure with an Italian Romanesque Revival exterior. Built in the 1860s, it is the third church to house the oldest Catholic congregation not only in the city but in all of upstate New York. In 1977 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places; it is also a contributing property to the Downtown Albany Historic District, listed on the Register several years later.It was established in the late 18th century. Early in the next century, the first church was built on the present location when the city donated the land. It is supposedly on a spot where St. Isaac Jogues took shelter after escaping from captivity in the early 17th century.

Some important figures in the American Church visited or were associated with it. John McCloskey, the first bishop of Albany and later the first American-born cardinal, made it his procathedral briefly.
