Brasses
Until recently, our brasses were hidden by the carpeting that the church had laid many years ago. With the help of some smart carpet work, these brasses are once again available for viewing (and in some time in the future brass rubbing). Details of our brasses can be found in "A Historical Guide to St. Mary Parish Church, by Anthony J. Lathey, a member of our church and is available in church.
