St. Mary Parish is a Roman Catholic parish in New Haven, Connecticut, part of the Archdiocese of Hartford.

The Parish of St. Mary consists of two churches: St. Mary's Church, and St. Joseph's Church, located in the Black Rock section of New Haven.

The Church of St. Mary's, New Haven, Connecticut, United States, was the first Catholic Church in New Haven, and the second oldest Roman Catholic parish in Connecticut. The parish was established in 1832 and is located near Yale University. The parish is part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hartford. The Knights of Columbus was founded here in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, who was then the church's assistant pastor; McGivney's remains are interred within the church. The church is currently run by friars of the Dominican Order.

In 2018, the parish of Saint Mary was consolidated with the parish of Saint Joseph in East Rock, New Haven; both church buildings remain open for regularly schedule worship, and the combined parish continues to use the Saint Mary name.
