Welcome to the Episcopal Church of St. Mary-in-the-Highlands website.

The Episcopal Church of St Mary-in-the-Highlands has been literally at the heart of Cold Spring since 1840. The current Church was erected in 1868.

Sunday Masses are at 8:00 and 10:30 am. We offer child care and Sunday School during the 10:30 am service.

St Mary's is a vibrant parish community consisting of a cross section of young families, middle-aged empty nesters, professionals, retired seniors and others.

Located in the Cold Spring National Register Historic District, our beautiful stone Church nestled in the spectacular Hudson Highlands has been called The Cathedral of the Hudson Valley for its graceful grey granite spire rising 128 feet above the village of Cold Spring. Read more "About Us"

We have a marvelous hall that is available for rentals. It is equipped with a full commercial kitchen and you will find it perfect for meetings, weddings, and receptions of all kinds. Be sure to visit our "Parish House" page for more information.
