Welcome to St. Mary's Catholic Church.  We are the flagship of the Catholic Community in Independence County and in Batesville, Arkansas.  We serve the college students of Lyon College with our Catholic Campus Ministry.  St. Mary's also attends St. Cecilia's Church in Newport, Arkansas (Jackson County) and St. Anthony's Church in Weiner, Arkansas (Poinsett County).  Our pastor is Rev. Dhanraj Narla who began his pastorate here on December 2012.  We also have a permanent deacon, Mike Cumnock.  We hope you will feel welcome to our community and to our Church.
