Located two blocks from the central campus of the University of Michigan, St. Mary Student Parish has been serving the Catholic community at U of M for more than 90 years. As a Jesuit parish, we strive in the Ignatian tradition to help everyone discover God already at work in their lives.
The Diocese of Lansing has designated St Mary Student Parish as the Ann Arbor Catholic parish with particular responsibility for serving the students, faculty and staff of the University of Michigan, with an emphasis on the students. In addition, we are blessed with support from a strong network of alumni and friends. Each group has a role to play in keeping parish life vibrant, diverse and welcoming.
We invite you to join us at one of our many Masses each weekend and see why so many students, residents and families have found a parish home here at St. Mary Student Parish.
