Churches

Religion

While the town contains a diverse mixture of churches of varying denominations, the largest of the town is Christian. The information presented here is from a 2001 census from Statistics Canada
 

Sacred Heart Parish


Established in 1910, the original edifice, constructed in the early 1900s had to be reconstructed in the mid 1980s due to a fire. In more recent years, the church has received much attention from the news when a family of illegal immigrants from Israel resided there as a place of sanctuary. The Portnoy family stayed in the church's basement for a total of 962 days while seeking citizenship status.  


Calvary Pentecost Church
 

Establishment of the church began in 1956. It was not until 1958 that the first Pentecost church in Marystown was officially completed. Since then there have been three Pentecost churches erected in the Marystown area: the original edifice in 1958, the second in 1974, and the current church that was built in 1995.
 

Seventh-Day Adventist Church
 

It wasn't until the 1970s that the Seventh Day Adventists established a significant population in Marystown. The construction of the first church began in 1985 along with a Seventh-Day school. Though the construction was completed much earlier, 1987 demarks the official church opening.
