Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church was established in 1946 and has been located at our current home on San Miguel Street in South Tampa since 1953. The current church building and parish hall were constructed in 2002 and continue to serve well as our gathering place for worship and fellowship.

Saint Mary’s boasts an active and diverse congregation, which is a product of a church community that welcomes all and serves all. From our young families experiencing fun, educational Sunday School classes, an engaging youth program for our high school and middle school members, several Christian Education programs for adults and an active Senior ministry that regularly meets for luncheons and fellowship, Saint Mary’s purpose is clear:

Faith. Family. Friends.

Father Eric Kahl has served as Rector of Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church and Chaplain of St. Mary’s Episcopal Day School School since 2011.

Father Eric is assisted in his ministry by a dedicated support staff including our Parish Administrator, Mary Lynch Benko, our Music Director/Choir Master Jacob Merrett, and our Book keeper/Comptroller, Bev Menard.

Father Lester Durst is our Priest Assistant. He is often our Celebrant and Preacher at our Sunday worship services.


Saint Mary’s Episcopal Day School resides on the Church campus and is one of our most important ministries. Headmaster since 1996, Scott Laird shares the following about Saint Mary’s school:

“Our academic program challenges students while preparing them for success in the most rigorous secondary programs. At the same time, our full enrichment offering allows students to explore their potential in athletics and the arts. There are many opportunities for children to excel at Saint Mary’s School.”

We invite you to visit Saint Mary’s and experience this community for yourself. We hope you will find a welcoming spiritual home and become part of all of the great things happening at Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church.
