Our History

St. Mary's in the Mountains has been an important part of the Deerfield Valley community for many years, in our prior home and our current beautiful sanctuary.  Check back soon for more details and pictures about our history.

Our Red Doors
 

Why are the doors of St. Mary's in the Mountains, and many churches, red?

In the Middle Ages, the color red, signifying the Blood of Christ, was painted on the north, south and east doors of a church (the three doors signifying the Trinity).  The symbolism represents the sign of the cross.  This marked the building as a sanctuary, a place of refuge and a safety zone from physical and spiritual dangers.  Today, our Red Doors shine forth with the warmth of a welcome to all who enter, and who need to be refreshed.  

 

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."  Matthew 11:28.
