St. Mary of the Hills Church is a small rural parish established in December of 1990, when the parishes of St. Andrew, Nelsonville (founded 1888) and St. Patrick, Buchtel (founded 1871) were consolidated.  Presently about 80 households make up the parish.

 O God our Creator,Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
