History of St. Mary's
ST. MARY'S MISSION CHURCH IN FISHKILL, NY was erected in 1861 at the beginning of the Civil War. For ninety-two years, St. Mary's was the mission of St. Joachim's Parish in Beacon. In February, 1953, a St. Mary's Parish Association was formed. This Association petitioned the Archdiocese for a separate Parish. On June 29, 1953, this new Parish was established with Monsignor Francis McKeon as its first Pastor. The building of the new school proceeded rapidly. The new School Auditorium was opened for masses on eve of the Assumption Feast of our Blessed Mother Mary, August 14, 1955.
