St. Mary’s Church – Lake Luzerne, NY
St. Mary’s Church, Lake Luzerne, in beautiful Lake Luzerne, strives to be a warm and welcoming parish committed to sharing the Good News of the saving, transforming and healing love of Jesus Christ. One of our principal founders was Lt. Col. Benjamin C. Butler, a Civil War Union Army officer. Legend has it that on one of the battlefields he made an oath to God that if he survived the war, he would help build a church. Upon returning safely home from the war he was faithful to his pledge, helping to establish St. Mary’s in 1865. St. Mary’s was also blessed to have the Rt. Rev. William H. Love, 9th Bishop of Albany, serve as rector from 1992-2006.
