St. Mary Parish is a Catholic church and school located in Buffalo Grove, Ill. The church’s original facility was built in 1853 by German Catholic settlers. However, that facility was destroyed by a fire and therefore, a second church was built 1899. The second church was later demolished to make room for the current structure built in 1978. St. Mary Parish’s church offers a 1,000-seat worship space and contains a unique, see-through altar. According to the parish’s Web site, St. Mary’s offers many opportunities for individuals and families to have a personal, faith-filled experience.
