St. Mary Parish History

St. Mary’s Church is our spiritual home in Franklin. We have gathered in this meeting place of God and man to solemnize His most sacred feasts.

Throughout the years, God’s house has welcomed us in the celebration of great events of both joy and sorrow in our lives. The highlights of St. Mary’s history reflect the dedication and service of the parish family.
