About Blessed Virgin Mary Church & Priory

Blessed Virgin Mary is a traditional Catholic parish located in the Syracuse area of Central New York, served by priests of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X.

We have daily Tridentine Masses and operate a traditional Catholic School for children K-12 with boarding accomodations for boys in grades 8-12. ​ The SSPX recognizes the importance of frequent social contact between its priests, its faithful, and the world at large. Community life, education, and apostolic works are crucial in forming a complete Catholic society. This growing parish serves as one of these outposts, eager to serve our community by providing traditional Catholic Sacraments.

Chapel Life

In addition to multiple daily opportunities for Mass and Confession, Blessed Virgin Mary offers a variety of activities and organizations for faithful of all ages.

Please see our organizations page for how you can join the various sodalities, organizations, and groups that provide spiritual and social benefits!
