Administrative history

St. Mary's began as a mission of St. Augustine, Marpole. The parish held its first service in a tent at what is now 37th and Larch in August of 1911. It became self-supporting and separated from St. Augustine in 1912. The church was built and dedicated in 1913, with a rectory and hall following in 1920 and 1924, respectively. It was incorporated in 1914.
