Welcome to St Mary's RC Church
St Mary’s RC Church is set in the market town of Lanark. We are very proud of this historic building and our wonderful parish community. Our Parish was founded in 1859 and was under the pastoral care of the Vincentian Fathers until 2006.
When Fr Brannigan, a priest of the Diocese of Motherwell took over in 2006 he started planning the renovation of this A-listed building: one of the finest Catholic churches in Scotland. This major work was completed in 2012.
The church is open daily from 8am till 4pm for visits and prayer. All are welcome. We also welcome you to our website and hope it gives you a flavour of our vibrant and active parish which aims to reflect the love of Jesus in our prayers and actions.
This website is far from complete, it’s a work in progress. All comments & suggestions welcome.
